I was unable to find a convenient space outside--so I'm growing my food within my fourth floor apartment. I'm calling it the "Kitchen Garden," and I plan to install 6-10 window box-shaped planters on top of my kitchen shelf and refrigerator. I'm going to hang two grow lights from the ceiling to supplement to daylight in that room. As my roommate said: "It's not going to look at all like we're growing weed in here."
eggplants; one of a "space saving" melon mixture.
In my bedroom, there will be two hanging planters in front of the window. Out the bottom, I'm going to grow a tomato plant and a pepper. On top, I'm going to plant strawberries. I'm also going to grow 2-3 kinds of sprouts, and a mushroom kit. In my windowbox, I already have mint growing, and chives (which I planted last year and grew pathetically; this spring they have BURST from the soil and are growing like maniacs). I'm also going to plant parsley and cilantro.
That's all! What do you think? Suggestions? Where am I going wrong?
And it's already foraging season! The wild garlic/onions are sprouting...
