I like potted herbs, like rosemary and oregano (thyme, mint, etc).

Their size will be limited by the size of the pot and by how much you pinch off a sprig to add to dinner.

They do well in many dif situations, like less light, etc.

Show us what you come up with!

I have an african violet, an orchid and a Wandering Jew I am trying to root in my NE-facing kitchen window. On the other side of the room (SW-facing) I have hanging baskets with spider plants.

My favorite for a kitchen window is the african violet. So pretty and such sweet flowers. It's a happy plant!
