I havent been on the forum for awhile. How is everyone. I came back because I had an interesting question.

During the last spring and summer, my garden, did not do well. We went on vacation for a couple weeks, unaware that our sprinkler system did not work while we were gone. Plants got no water and died while we were on vacation. Sad, we did not get any yield at all. That leads me to my question, I read a lot on the internet that some vegetables and fruits grow well indoors during the winter months. My question, is this true? And if so, what vegetables grow well indoors?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome back! Sorry about the sprinklers! Ouch!

I've read about growing peppers indoors in the winter but the whole thing sounds really hard. A lot of set up and maintenance and grow lights and..... If you do it take notes and write about it here for the acorns. Smiling

I kept a tomato plant going on my enclosed back porch one winter. Worked out ok, just had to rattle the plant occasionally to get the flowers pollinated. Didn't keep it the whole winter, but I did get some tomatoes off it.

I think I will try it. And I will take notes on it and post it whether I am successful or not. I think I will try peppers, tomatoes, carrots, lettuce, celery, and some other small vegetables.

Thanks for the help!

Go for it, Jared! I've always thought that would be fun to do if you have the room and lights.
