Solar Powered Indoor Plant Lamp?

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

I am planning on trying to make a circuit that will provide light to my indoor vegetable garden. I want it to be able to charge via sunlight during the day then used at night. I want it to power CFL’s for the light source. Actually which light bulbs/whatever would be best for an indoor garden?

Thanks in advance! :]
Thanks to those who are answering my gardening help, but I need help with making a electronic circuit, similar to a joule thief, to power a CFL bulb but charging during the day via solar energy.

        My first vegetable Garden?? Advice?

        Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

        I live in an area where it rains from September to April nearly every year, and then the temperatures rise and it is relatively dry from May to August. I know next to nothing about gardening, but would like to give it a try to save myself some money on groceries since I just bought my own house.

        I want to start a smaller sized garden that is easy to maintain, but that I can grow my favorite vegetables. I would like to grow squash, cucumbers, carrots, leaf lettuce, sweet bell peppers and radishes.

        So my questions are:
        1) How large should I make the garden?
        2) What are the best vegetables to plant with the weather conditions that I generally have?
        3) What are the easiest "beginner" vegetables?
        4) How much space should I be allowing for each different plant?

                    I have little flies around my indoor organic garden soil that is expensive, in a big pot, how can I kill them?

                    Sunday, April 24th, 2011

                    What if, since I live in Phoenix I could put it outside in the sun lets say when its a 112 degrees outside will that kill them or will they come back when the soil gets wet again when I start to grow indoor veggies.
