    I'm looking for live herb plants for an indoor window box for the winter. Pesche's is all out for the season.

    Has anyone seen anything recently? It's all mums and kale here. If like to have sage, rosemary and thyme (parsley is cheap and I don't use it much)

    Have you tried Meinke Garden Center in Niles? I haven't been there in a few months but it's certainly worth a call.

    Have you looked for herb plants at the farmers market? I know they have fresh herbs, but I am not sure if they still carry herb plants. Also you might also check Lowe's. Uhrhausen in Lincolnwood might still have them too, but they are on their fall winter schedule, and so they are only open M-F. 1-847-675-1753. I would call them first before you show up there. They are located at 6973 N E. Prairie in Lincolnwood.

    If you ever make it to Wisconsin you might try Anton's which is right across the state line. It is owned by the brother of Gary Anton who used to have a garden center in Evanston by the same name. I was sad when he closed after 75 years a few years ago.

    I noticed one of the farmer's at the Evanston farmer's market was selling sage plants today. It was the guy I bought the fresh basil from. I have no idea how much they were. He did not have prices on anything.

    I ended up with sage and thyme from Lurvey's in Des Plaines, and Mariano's had a very robust and inexpensive rosemary.

    I just brought them inside (they're in a window box), along with my makrut lime, and an attempt at potting one of the three shishito plants but I fear I didn't go deep enough.

    Harvested all the tomatoes bigger than a ping pong ball even if they haven't gotten to breaker (pickle or fry or counter ripen), about a quart of shishitos and a half dozen sweet peppers (the jalas all went to baked poppers a week ago). There's still kale and Brussels sprouts out there.
