Plants and how they die

I have a history with plants... it's not a proud or happy one. I kill them. Not that I mean to, it just sort of happens, they are either neglected too long or overwatered, or well I don't really know. All I know is that I'm no good at it. However the rising cost of fresh herbs in the supermarket has driven me to try once again. Here is what I have so far (picked up some pretty spring stuff too, just for fun).

Tips, tricks, or any kind of help you can give me would be much appreciated. I am the suck when it comes to plants (seriously, my husband just laughed at me when I brought this all home... for an uncomfortably long time).

There has been much progress on both sweaters I'm knitting right now, but as the long weekend is just getting started I won't post pictures until it's over - just to see how far I can get :) Happy Easter!

I have the exact same problem. I have only recently found a plant that has held up to me. As strange as it sounds, I've found that what works best is to ignore them. That sounds totally counter intuitive, but if I ignore it except for sunday (when I water it) somehow it works and they don't die. Good luck (if I had the window ledge space I would start an herb garden - those prices really are getting ridiculous, and I'm used to horrible produce prices in NYC).
