Indoor veggie gardening
We happened into a nice utility shelf and some fluorescent shop lights recently. Hubby has borderline high cholesterol and was told he needs to start eating more veggies. He actually likes salads, I just don't like paying the ridiculous prices at the grocery for mediocre lettuce, and have had no luck growing lettuce outdoors...sooooo, we decided to start a small indoor garden to grow lettuce - hopefully year round. Does anyone have any BTDT advice? Ie, how deep should my containers be, what is a good potting mix to use inside, how many hours under the lights, what are some other small, low growing veggies that would work inside?
