Indoor garden help/Pacific Northwest in January?

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

I would like to start an indoor container garden in my apartment and I need some assistance. I live in Oregon and we don’t get much sun light in winter months. I would put the plants in front of the window obviously, and my apartment is about 62f degrees.

Would vegetables grow under these conditions?

Listed below are the types of veggies I want to grow from seeds. Any help with the size of container, or anything at all would be a great help. Ive never gardened anything before, so consider you are talking to an idiot.

cherry tomatoes
leaf lettuce

Any other easy to grow vegetable options or any other tips at all would be awesome. Thank you.

    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?
