Black thumb, but want to grow herbs

cheesecake17 | Apr 19, 200908:01 AM     10

I truly think I was cursed with a black thumb. I can't keep cut flowers or plants alive. But, I'm fed up with purchasing small bundles of herbs and I want to try to grow my own.

I was thinking to grow several small pots of basil, rosemary, mint, and thyme. The problem is I have literally no outdoor space. The pots can go on a table in my living room (lots of sun) or on the table in my kitchen (very little sun).

Any helpful hints? What grows best? Should I buy seeds or tiny plants? Where should I put them? I really want to get this right!
