First Project Complete for the New Year

My new indoor garden. This is actually the first step toward an indoor garden. We had to enclose the grow lights and growing area in a cabinet to keep the three pesky indoor cats from eating all the fruits of our labor. One cabinet has been built to test the theory of growing greens and herbs with the grown lights inside during the winter months and to start off seedlings.

A better picture of the inside. Sometime this week I will buy something cheap to use as pots and probably start planting spinach and some other choice greens to see what happens. I love salad and eat it probably 3-4 times a week. It is the one produce item that would really set me back if I started eating seasonally. Also since we have no sun in our yard (due to wooded lot) we need to be a little more creative with some of our growing techniques. I will keep you posted on any progress. Keeping our fingers crossed.

That looks fabulous, I am green with envy! I save the toilet roll inners (and get all the family to save them too) to use as pots, especially useful for long rooted veg such as peas, beans etc xxx
