Hi Brandon. I haven't been here in quite awhile since it's so slow, so it's good to see somebody actually posting!

I grow veggies in small spaces and give seminars on the subject, also. What do you grow?

hello Sandy... u give seminars on growing veg.s in small spaces? how cool! I live downtown and have literally NO space outside. But i do have a sunroom and some addt'l indoor space. Which candidates (if any) would u recommend for indoors... i only have south windows in the sunroom, all others are east.

Hi yogagrl. The only veggies that do well indoors, even with lots of windows, are the leafy ones, like lettuce or kale, or radishes might produce a bulb. Those that flower and produce "fruit" need more sunlight than comes through windows. There are a lot of very pretty lettuces you could try.

If you could provide supplemental grow lights, then you can grow just about anything indoors. There's a good forum here on growing under lights. I'll put a link at the bottom of this post.

Do you have a patio or deck? If so and it gets adequate sunlight (minimum of 6 hours full sun a day) then you can grow veggies in pots or planters.

VA Tech has good publications on the subject. Here's a link to a good list:

Good luck. With a little work you should be able to grow a few fresh veggies, even downtown!

Thanks so much Sandy! Sorry I got busy with school and haven't been back here for a while.

I actually do have a grow light but I'm sure for veggies I will need to get more. No patio but I think grow lights or not I am going to look into some lettuces. I just love the self-sufficiency I have with my herbs and adding lettuce to the mix would definitely be nice :)

Thanks for your time and help(and the great links)!

Yup Brandon, close to it. It's a shame isn't it? The concept is good but the users are few....

I agree. This should be the busiest forum here. Right now, I have realized that I have started too soon, but I will try again later this month. My tomatoes are spindly, and I know why. I will add this forum to my favorites.
