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.

    Can I use a desktop sunlight lamp to grow a small indoor garden?

    Sunday, August 15th, 2010

    I have a desktop sun light lamp, a lamp that simuates natural light. It says 27 W on the bulb. Can I use this as a growlight to grow herbs?

    If this is not suitable, can anyone suggest a low-heat alternative? I don’t want my seeds to suffer because of ineadequate lighting, but I’ve heard that these lamps are good enough for growing.
