- Do you have a windowsill that gets any light? If so, measure it and buy a couple of long planters to fit just so. Or a few planter pots. Don't have a windowsill? Get some planters anyway and while you're at it, hop on down to the Home Depot or Wal-Mart to get a grow (plant) lite to fit one of your lamps.
- Fill the planter(s) with good potting soil. Make sure you place something underneath to catch the water from when you get over-zealous with the watering.
- Do you have any seeds leftover: lettuce, spinach, kale, etc.? What about carrots, radishes, scallions or parsley? If not, post an ad on a local free-cycle yahoo group or ask around with your friends and family. Perhaps your local hardware or nursery might have some leftover. Or go to Baker Creek (http://www.rareseeds.com/) and order some.
- Plant according to packet directions.
- Watch, tend and wait. Within 60 days or so, you'll have fresh vegetables or herbs for healthy meals.
Don't be dependent on the grocery store to sell you produce picked from 2 states away, and might possibly be tainted with who-kn0ws-what. Take care of your food needs yourself. Plant an indoor garden! Enjoy!
