Yard sizes are shrinking, leaving home owners smaller spaces for growing veggies, fruits, herbs and other edibles that can help supplement our healthy diets. Growing food indoors can increase your nutritional intake by sprouting seeds or growing microgreens or herbs near a bright window or kitchen counter.
-Seed Starting. Don’t have a greenhouse? Start your seeds indoors 1-2 months before you plan to acclimate them outdoors. In winter- start cool season plants to go outdoors in March or April. In early spring, start warm season plants to go outdoors in May.
