How to Garden Indoors

Woman Potting Plants

While we live in beautiful Eau Claire, many people don't enjoy being out in the cold to garden. It's because of this that we highly advocate gardening indoors when you get the chance. While it can be difficult, if not impossible, during the winter. It's a great way to get a head start on the process of outdoor gardening during spring. Because of this, we are going to show you how to garden indoors.

How to Garden Indoors

You only need three things to garden indoors. Space, Soil, and Sun!

Space - First, you need to clear out a good amount of space to set up your operation. You want it to be spread out and level and a nice flat surface. It's also best if you can make it accessible to a power outlet for usability.

Soil - Next you will want to keep either a row of pots or a little gutter filled with loose top soil. This will help make it easy to grow the sprouts before you transplant them to the world outside. Healthy soil means healthy food!

Sun - Finally, you will want to get great lights. You need to compare what lights will be best with what you are trying to grow. But for the most part, you want solar lights or great incandescent lamps if possible.

What can you Plant Indoors?

February and March - Leeks and Onions

For February and March, I'm going to be difficult to grow anything other than leeks and onions at any given point; this thin, juicy vegetable will grow easier in February then later when the climate is more forgiving.

April - Tomato, Pepper, Peas, Lettuce, Cauliflower and Broccoli

April is when you can grow the more fruity vegetables. The ones that grow to be larger and more potent need a climate that's very agreeable.
