Answer: A.As long as your windows are not north-facing, you can grow several vegetables without the use of artificial lights. Start with a soil mix of one part each: commercial seed-starting mix; well rotted compost; potting soil. (Best to purchase this packaged to insure it isn't contaminated.) If you plant greens, keep in mind that they are cool season crops and will not germinate well in too-warm soil. They will do best between 60 and 70 degrees. You can shade them with gauze or a bamboo shade. You can grow a variety of other vegetables as well. I would recommend a book called: The Apartment Farmer, by Duane Newcomb. Published by J.P. Tarcher, Inc. It will guide you step-by -step.
