Fall/winter indoor garden

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...

RE: Fall/winter indoor garden

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.)
