        What kind of lighting should I use for an indoor herb garden?

        Saturday, May 28th, 2011

        This summer I’m planning to grow herbs for the first time. I’m starting with just a few simple cooking herbs, and I want to grow them in my room but I’m concerned about lighting. They’ll be next to the window so they’ll get plenty of fresh air, but my room isn’t facing in the right direction for a lot of sunlight to filter in. Would it be a good idea to get a timed grow light for them? And if so, what type of light should I get, and what times during the day should it be on?

              Vegetable Garden?

              Saturday, May 28th, 2011

              So my brown thumb and I are going for take 2 on growing our own vegetables.

              I had a tiny bit of success last year and managed to grow some broccoli, a couple of zucchinis and 1 yellow squash.

              My issue is this:
              If my broccoli (or tomato or pepper) row is successful, I now have… what, maybe 2 weeks to eat 9 or so heads of broccoli before it goes bad?

              Is there anything I can do to enjoy the vegetables of my labor for longer? I could probably freeze broccoli, but I can’t freeze tomatoes.

              I work so hard, and I want to be able to enjoy the things I grow.

              P.S. I have asked this in the garden section also, but surely there are some green thumbs among the vegetarians.

              🙂
              Thanks for all the wonderful answers so far. Spaghetti sauce sounds wonderful. I must add that tomato is an example. Any more general thoughts on vegetables in general, and enjoying them for longer would be very helpful.

              🙂
              Oooh, you are so right. I should add that.
              I live in the U.S. in Ohio. Weather can be very tricky here.
              Sometimes we have enormous winters, sometimes very hot summers.
