"Project Indoor Edible Garden" update - Day 2

Creating an indoor edible garden

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

I love fresh produce and gardening.  But the winter months are just around the corner and my ability to just walk outside my door and harvest something for a salad or a quick stir fry is just about gone for the year.

So I got to thinking, "Why not bring some of my garden, indoors?"

I've got some empty space to put up a good sized shelf unit, the room has a big east window for some natural light and I can supplement that with some plant lights.....

Yep, it's the beginning of a project....

So what kind of veggies can be grown indoors?

That's a key question because by growing plants indoors, I won't have the benefit of insects and/or wind to pollinate the plants, I'll have to cultivate self-pollinating veggies.

Here's the list of what I'll attempt with that in mind:

  • Green Beans (bush variety)
  • Green Onions
  • Lettuces
  • Peas
  • Peppers
  • Radishes
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • A variety of herbs like basil, cilantro, mint, oregano, parsley, thyme, etc

I'm looking forward to putting this project together, and not having to shop for 'so-so' produce at the grocery store during the winter months.

Stay tuned for the Bachelor on the Cheap "Project Indoor Edible Garden" updates!  Here's the starting point, as you can see, I've got a blank canvas to work with.....
