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.
