Indoor Edible Gardens

If you don't have space outside to have a garden, an indoor edible garden may be for you. You can grow indoor gardens hydroponically or in a container with soil.

The simplest form of indoor gardening is to grow plants in front of windows that receive a lot of sunlight. Windows that face south and west usually receive enough light to grow leaf and root vegetables such as beets, carrots, lettuce, onions, and radishes.

Grow lights are a more effective way to produce indoor crops. You can purchase complete kits or make your own. Grow lights allow you to control the amount of light your plants receive, and let you grow fruit crops like tomatoes and strawberries.
