Farm-to-Table: Growing Your Food Indoors
A SELF-ADMITTED PLANT KILLER TURNED-URBAN HOMESTEADER SHARES HER SECRETS ON SUCCESSFULLY GROWING PLANTS INDOORS.
(Thank you to my editor, Annie Thornton, for that hilarious tag-line)
I considered myself a professional plant assassin before my husband and I moved into our first apartment that had a small patch of dirt. For years, I had lived in tiny studios and struggled to keep my plants thriving. So I was overjoyed when our first sunflowers grew at the same time our first baby was born. Lo and behold! It seemed I could actually keep things alive. Just in time for parenthood.
Fast-forward 14 years, and we now have an urban homestead with plants thriving both indoors and outdoors. (The kids have survived too; thanks for asking.) Through trial and error, I’ve learned that it doesn’t require a lot of space to grow food at home, just a sunny spot. If you’re lucky enough to have outdoor garden space, the indoors can become a greenhouse to nurture vegetables before planting them outside.
