Veggies Indoors? Absolutely!
Whether you are an expert gardener or are entirely new to it, growing veggies indoors should definitely be on your to-do list, it’s on mine for next season. After all, what’s better than knowing that the food you’re eating is actually grown by you, and is the freshest, healthiest you could get your hands on.
Here are the 7 best veggies that you can grow indoors with minimal effort. And seriously, easier is better for success!
While an indoor garden won’t give you those huge, juicy carrots that you would probably buy at the supermarket, but they are still a good veggie you could try your hands at. All you need is a pot that’s deep enough and some basic gardening skills to get you a supply of fresh carrots all year long.
Mushrooms are one of the best veggies you could grow indoors, especially during the winter. You’ll find several options for mushroom growing kits to choose from, and all of those make it pretty easy for you to do it right. Best of all, mushrooms are super healthy & versatile and once you start growing them, there’s no turning back!
Scallions, also known as spring onions, are again, super easy to grow, and even if you don’t have seeds for these, you can easily regrow them from the roots on the bulbs of some scallions that you may have picked up for your week’s worth of produce.
Lemon goes well with so many dishes, and that, combined with the fact that you can grow them indoors super easily, makes it a perfect addition to this list. While it does take a longer time for it to grow from the seed to the fruit, you can always pick up a blooming plant from the nursery and continue caring for it.
Most greens, including lettuce greens, are super easy to grow indoors, because they can thrive in very little sunlight, unlike root vegetables. What’s best is the fact that these greens do not take up a lot of space, and you’ll have a lot of produce once it has grown to its fullest. Now there’s no excuse to not have that bowl of salad!
Microgreens are undoubtedly the best veggies to grow indoors, especially if you’re new to gardening. They grow super quickly and require less space, and taste absolutely yum, not to mention that they are also packed with lots of nutrients.
Ginger is another great root vegetable you can try growing, especially if you cook a lot of Asian food or just like the touch of freshness it adds to your meals. What’s best is the fact that growing this root vegetable is super super easy- you just need to keep in mind that you use a piece of ginger that has been grown naturally and without any chemicals as the ‘seed’ for your plant.
Now, doesn’t that sound like a lovely introduction to indoor gardening? I think that both of us will be a big success with our next little indoor garden, don’t you?
