The Indoor Garden
Gardening doesn’t have to stop just because the warm weather did. Who knew growing your favoriteÂ veggies and herbs indoors could be done simply with a few containers sitting on a shelf?
While a shelf full of container-filled veggies and herbs will neverÂ replace a larger outdoor garden, a shelf can be enough space toÂ have your fresh choices on-hand all year. As with any new project,Â it’s wise to start small: a container of salad greens, perhaps, andÂ make sure it’s something you enjoy doing and want to pursueÂ before making any bigger purchases, such as specific shelving andÂ grow lights.
Growing Food In Your Home: The Green Thumb

Take a look at this list for suggestions. Choose foodsÂ you enjoy cooking with, but be willing to experiment and test newÂ recipes! It won’t take long before you learn which edible plantsÂ grow best in your home.
