I love to spend as much time in the vegetable garden as I possibly can. I affectionately refer to my garden as my happy place, and that’s because it is. I’m even a certified master gardener. If you love to garden like me, check out these great vegetable gardening ideas from a certified master gardener (me!).
Vegetable Gardening Ideas: Indoor
If you don’t have tons of space for gardening vegetables outside, you can always grow them indoors! Believe it or not, you can grow a whole vegetable garden on your windowsill. You just need the right kind of vegetables. I recommend starting with lettuce, chives, red peppers, and mini tomatoes. All of these need similar lighting needs and these are usually the most commonly used items in a garden, for me anyway. To learn more about growing your own windowsill garden, check out this tutorial from my archives.
Of course, when growing vegetables indoors, you can grow some of them in water. For some gardeners, propagating vegetables in water is easier than managing soil moisture. If the soil gets too moist, you might have root rot problems and no one wants that. So why not propagate in water instead? Follow this tutorial of mine to learn how to propagate your own vegetables in the water at home.
