Any sugggestions?  Going to grow some herbs and tomatoes in our office at our desk.  I have some lights I can turn on at my desk to help since I am not at a window.

Thinking basil, thyme, rosemary, chives for use during lunches along with a tomato plant (Italian cherry type tomato)

Have plenty of experience starting plants for growing outside but never kept them inside.   I have taken plants from outside and brought them inside at end of season before.

Has anyone done this?

Hi M;
Herbs yes I think will do fine.
But tomato's... I think only if you have a grow light would they get big and bear fruit.
I could be wrong, I'm a rocket scientist (the rmh kind) not a gardener.  That's my wife's specialty.

This would be a great time to look into a small aerogarden. It is designed specifically for this type of thing. In my experience, however, it works best when all plants are the same, or at least take up the same amount of height.
