How to Garden Indoors & Grow Your Own Food Year Round

Here we are in the gray of winter and I am preparing to grow some vegetables in my small office room. In the past I have grown flower plants under lights in the basement, but this is a different plan. I don’t have a lot of light or room, but I am  going to give a plant or two a try. How to Garden & Grow Your Food Year Round gives a lot  of good information.

Container Gardening

There are many ways to garden indoors, and I expect that many people have pots of flowers on their windowsills. hanging from a hook on the window frame, or fibrous cups sitting on the  windowsill.  As I read the book I was inspired and got my husband to hang up grow-lights from our basement so I could grow seeds under them. There are many ways to set up your plants whether they are for seed growing or hanging plants.  There are also items like a Garden Tower that is filled with soil and has open ‘windows’ that allow seeds to grow.  There is even such a thing as a hydroponic jar with water. It is amazing to learn the many ways you can plant and grow.

Grow Lights

I have been so fascinated about learning ways to Garden Indoors that I (which is to say My Husband) brought equipment up from the basement. There is the Grow Light above the plant pots, and a heat pad below the heat pots. I’m feeling ready to get some seeds.

Watering, Composting and General Tips

Kim Roman said this is the ‘Miscellaneous Chapter” and it certainly does include some DIY self-watering containers, mulching, pinching and pruning plants to keep them healthy, and composting. And there certainly is a lot of good information.

    I won’t be able to turn my room to a field, but it will be fun to try vegetables in the house.
