Suggested Vegetables for Indoor Gardening

It’s getting close to winter time here in the States. Last year during this time I was wrapping up my growing season on my fire escape garden. This now that I’m on the left coast I can grow on my balcony garden year round.

Not everyone is that fortunate when it comes to their growing season. For most of you the season has pretty much ended unless you’ve built a cold frame or hoop house to extend your season.

Just because the weather has dropped doesn’t mean that you can’t continue to grow or start to grow your own. If you have access to a windowsill that gets about 6-8 hours of sunlight a day, you can grow.

Here’s a list of some shallow rooted veggies and herbs that will do well in a small indoor garden:

That’s a good starting point for veggies that can be grown indoors during the colder months.

Are there any other suggestions?
