Fall/winter indoor garden

deebo82(8 Puget Sound/WA)September 9, 2010

There's not a lot going on in this forum, but thought I'd give it a shot just in case...

I've had a (fairly) successful sunroom (shut in balcony) garden this summer (tomatoes, peppers, some cukes, lots of herbs); since the summer weather's starting to wind down, have been debating what to grow this fall/winter. For outdoors, people suggest leafy greens/cabbages and whatnot, but does anyone have any recommendations for great veggies indoors?

I was thinking chard, spinach, etc, but haven't made it much past there...

If your winters are mostly of the 'grey sky' variety you might want to look at baby greens and mesclun mixes for saladings. Chard/silver beet is tolerant of lower light levels. Another possible, if you like it, is whitloof/chicory.

If you have enough warmth left for starting them, baby carrots can be good, too. And transplanted scallions/spring onions. (Cheat. Buy a bunch at the supermarket and just plant them up for use over the winter.)
