Indoor Gardening

since moving to New York i've developed a new appreciation and serious love of gardening. the only problem is i have very limited space in this one bedroom apartment to enjoy my favorite new hobby.  i've gotten to the point where all the obvious spots in the apartment are covered in plant life... the windowsills, the side table, the flea market ladder (whose sole function is to be a plant display at this point). i absolutely love living in New York City, especially in this apartment, but i still catch myself daydreaming about the future when we'll have a backyard with room to grow herbs and fruits and veggies... even some of our plants that stay alive in here do so reluctantly and i know would prefer more sunlight and probably less AC blasting them constantly.
