In expectation of being driven inside by the cold new england winter... does anyone have suggestions for mini indoor crops? Something easy that will happily grow and produce near a window? I'd love to have some homegrown edibles through the season..
I'm going to compile a lot of the information that you guys have shared here and create an article for the homegrown blog. Do any of you have photos of your indoor gardens that you'd like to share? Please post them here if you do. Thanks!
This was our first year doing outside raised bed gardens during the Spring/Summer/Fall. While I tried to cold frame to get some lettuce, it hasn't been too successful. So, we started sprouting indoors! We did sunflower, broccoli and today's harvest will be radish! It's so easy to do with a glass jar and some cheese cloth over the top. Soak overnight the first night, then rinse daily (sometimes 2/3 times) and let drain by flipping the jar over and setting it on the counter at an angle. Depending on the sprouts, you'll have something to eat within 4-7 days. Our jar sits right under our kitchen window which gets indirect sunlight and all our sprouts turn green. My husband says this is his type of gardening :)
Cornelia - I'll try to get a picture of this batch before we eat them.
