Indoor garden, in the house during the winter, is it possible/feasible?

April 21st, 2014

I am interested in having an indoor garden, in just containers for food crops. Has anyone else tried this? I am worried about bugs in the house, and the amount of sun needed.

I would really love to grow some foods indoors during the winter because here in Kansas the winter seems like forever, and food prices get sky high.

Any input/advice would be appreciated as to techniques to avoid bugs, and any experiences shared would be great to hear.

Thanks.
