Indoor Gardening: Ideas to Grow Food Inside

Indoor gardening is a great way to harvest fresh food

Even if you have a large garden outside during the summer, indoor gardening gives you fresh greens or herbs inside during the off-season winter months. Indoor gardening has some major bonuses too!

We started indoor gardening with herbs in pots of soil.

Then added a mini greenhouse to start seeds in the springtime with some indoor grow lights (we use the sunblaster ones) which as a nice step up for indoor gardening. If you want to grow super easy and basics growing microgreens is a great start for beginners too.

  1. Very interesting ideas! Would love to have more information on how to grow the upside down herbs and other plants. Where can one find the containers for this type of gardening.

    • Hi Suresh,

      I’ve never heard that it does, it’s basically using the nutrients that are in soil but without the soil itself. I’d google companies that sell hydrophonics in your area and email them further questions 🙂
