Re: indoor gardening

I started stuff last year under florescent lights, and a space heater to keep the conditions ideal. keeping the conditions was easy for what i did, but i didnt think the stuff grew like it should have.

Re: indoor gardening

I think thats the concept behind the aerogarden thing or whatever its called. I'd imagine it can be done but I doubt it will be the same quality result as something grown outside during the normal growing season.

Re: indoor gardening

yeah,i realize nothing beats mother nature but i just wanted to see how it would work out,i was making deer sasuage and i needed sage,none to be found in the house or at the first 2 stores i went to and when i finially drove another 5 miles to a larger super-market i paid almost 5 bucks, that got me to thinking i am trying to be as self efficient as i can be so why not have a spice garden in the cellar, i figure it might not be quality grown outside but still has to be better then in a jar from a store probally over a year old.

Re: indoor gardening

Well I know my aunt used the aerogarden to grow some herbs in the kitchen and I know it worked. I also know my uncle complained about the high electric bill but don't know if that was the cause or the "amish made elec heater" they also had running haha....I'm sure its worth a try if nothing else. If you have a warm enough room and a shop light you should be good to go...
