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
- 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.
