      Indoor vegetable garden?

      Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

      Thanks to anyone willing to take the time to answer. I do not have a lot of gardening experience, so please be kind.
      🙂

      I am starting my 2nd attempt at an outdoor garden, but thought it would be nice to have some veggies grow in my house… perhaps even after the outdoor season ends.

      1.) What kind of vegetables can be grown indoors?

      2.) How deep of soil should I have to grow veggies?

      3.) Do I need fancy gardening lights, or is sunlight through the window enough?

      4.) If I do need fancy lights, would the cost of the lights and the electricity come out to a lot more than buying veggies from the store?

      5.) How much light do plants need in a day.

      6.) If I keep them in my porch instead of in a heated room, could they die when it is cold?
      ______
      Seeds I have so far: bell peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, onions, scallions, broccoli, spinach, yellow squash, carrots, cucumber, brussels sprouts, banana peppers…

      Thanks for answering any of these you may know.

      How do I have a successful indoor garden?

      Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

      I’d like to start an indoor garden, growing things like spinach, tomatoes, and herbs. I have no idea where to start, though. My house has lots of windows, plus a large bay window I could make into a garden area.

      How do I start and maintain an indoor garden for successful results? Should i fertilize it?

      Thanks!
      I have no idea what the first answer means…
