You have seen how plants can sometimes grow in the oddest places, haven't you? You could have a little plant poking out of a crevice in the mortar on the fifth floor of of a brownstone; plants can grow in what looks like hard rock in a little crack that's collected a little water and a little soil. It might occur to you to look at this, that if nature is this flexible about having plants thrive in the most inhospitable places, that perhaps you could take up a little indoor vegetable gardening yourself, and things would come along well. And you would be right to think this.
Most people, when they have it suggested to them that they might try a bit of indoor vegetable gardening, only wonder about how they might get their plants to actually survive in such unnatural surroundings. But that's not what they have to worry about at all. In truth, plants have it better indoors. There are no pests that bother them for instance. You don't ever need to spray your plants with harmful chemicals just to protect them. The only thing that you might need to worry about is how planting vegtables and herbs indoors, you may not actually have enough room to grow a great deal. You make get enough for a fresh salad once in a while, but that's it.
Nevertheless, indoor vegetable gardening can be such a worthwhile endeavor. Life in an apartment can feel so much nicer and friendlier to have fresh vegetables growing in every corner. All you need to do is to think about preparing an environment that's suited to those little salad ingredients. You also need to make sure that you wisely choose vegetables and herbs to grow in your garden. Not every vegetable garden makes the transfer indoors successfully. Some do thrive in little tiny spaces, while others don't.
Lettuce is often considered the best vegetable for indoor vegetable gardening enthusiasts. Radishes, peppers, tomatoes, mint, basil, parsley all of these take very well to life indoors.
It really depends on how your house is situated, the direction your indoor vegetable gardening efforts take. If you have no sunshine at all, you could go with hydroponics where you grow your plants in little artificially lighted containers that are all nutrient bath and no soil. Even if you do get a little sunshine, potting soil might still be a far better idea than actual gardening soil.
Success with indoor vegetable gardening is quite easy. Even people who wouldn't usually see themselves as green thumbed can easily make a great go of this.
