Really miss herbs in the winter (not that kind, the food seasoning kind).
I've been thinking about this kit, but the expendables seem like the game.

We'd like to have winter dill, thyme, basil.
I know the oregano will over-winter fine indoors.
Hopefully the rosemary too.

Seen some ref to strawberry pots here. Anyone using that method?
I'll assume with soil rather than nutrient based water.

We have 1 window at 155º, southern exposure, without too much to relocate.

Strawberry pots use soil and work well with herbs.

If you are adventuresome and want something different, you can set up a small Aquaponic garden with a 10-gallon aquarium, a few goldfish (or whatever fish), some gravel, a small pump and a growing tray.

To explain Aquaponics in the simplest terms - Fish poop in the water, the water feeds the plants, the plants filter the water, the water goes back to fish. It is a self-perpetuating cycle that requires minimal work on your part. Essentially an organic form of hydroponics (which isn't truly organic)

Watch this and you'll get the basic idea

we've already got the fish. I'm sure they'd prefer the indoors to under the ice.

Some other interesting vids as well in vertical gardens.

But I think perhaps the strawberry pot for now.

FWIW, I got an aerogarden as a gift for the wife for the holidays last year. She loves it. She's no longer dealing with their kits, though. She buys seeds and the nutrient solution in bulk.

I thought their pods need to be used? Does she recycle the pods with bulk seeds and nutrient?
Sources?

She cleans the cone-shaped holders and puts new seeds in. Seems to work just fine.

Bezos has the nutrient solution as well.
