Moving the growing indoors

With the exception of those hardy winter vegetables, like leafy greens, that you planted in September and October, your garden is probably looking pretty subdued (especially if it was recently covered with a foot of snow or fallen trees).  You can still plant bulbs, and fall clean-up time is soon (remember, you don't need to clean up that much, you should leave some of your leaves on your property or add them to your compost pile ).

In light of CT NOFA's Indoor Food and Flower growing workshop this Saturday at 10:00 am at Common Ground High School in New Haven, lets talk about indoor growing!
As you can see from our office plants, we're experts.
If you have a window that gets 6-8 hours of sunlight a day, you can grow plants like lettuce, endive and arugula, radishes, small-crop tomatoes, peppers, and bush beans.  Herbs are pretty easy to grow indoors too - you can grow chives, basil, parsley, oregano, cilantro, peppermint and rosemary.  You can of course grow vegetables in pots, but you can also grow in glass, creating a terrarium.  Here's a how-to video: 

Please check out the workshop this weekend, from 10:00am - 12:00 pm for more information! You can grow a surprising amount of food indoors, and can really lighten up your space with living plants! 

Container gardens, establish outside are especially easy to move indoors
