What Do You Really Need to Grow Vegetables Indoors?

You've seen systems for $200, others for $500, expensive lighting solutions and hydroponic claims. Indoor Salad puts these technologies and more into perspective, and you into the driver's seat.

The practical crops to grow indoors are the salad vegetables we eat fresh - lettuce, brassicas like kale and cabbage and Asian greens, herbs, cucumbers, beans, peppers, and mouth-melting tomatoes. Starting from what those crops need, Indoor Salad explores technologies to meet those needs - from the humble CFL light bulb to container gardening to hydroponics. Get growing today with do-it-yourself projects for the craftsy. Or buy ready-made systems with confidence.

Hydroponics and potting mix - when to use which
Organic and inorganic options
Best grow projects for kids

4 types of crop plant needs
7 lighting technologies
9 DIY projects include the author's own inventions
11 crops detailed with proven indoor varieties

Are you an urban gardener disappointed by your harvests? An Aerogarden owner suffering tomato heartbreak? A container gardener who wants to take it year-round? A black thumb that yearns to be green? Stubbornly insist that growing your own should cost less than the farm market? Bemused or offended by the price tags on indoor grow systems? Believe all kids should know how to grow food? Simply want to eat good food, bite into a tomato and mayo sandwich, bursting with rich flavor and no pesticides? Me, too.

Whether you're an indoor gardening novice, or an experienced vegetable gardener seeking to up your game, read this engaging, skimmable book. You'll soon be busy gardening and eating the fruits of your efforts - year round, no matter where you live. I dare you to buy this book and not harvest fresh lettuce indoors within the month.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best place to start indoor growing 22. Oktober 2013
Von Chris Wesley - Veröffentlicht auf
I like this book a lot. I find I can drink in the knowledge easily, and there's lots of it. The scope of the book is to cover all you need to know to get going with indoor growing. The various options are explained and compared for you to make your choices.

The author never over-reaches her experience which I find reassuring. If she doesn't know about something, she says so; if she has only anecdotal evidence, she says so; if she has first-hand knowledge - good and bad - she'll share it with you. She's tried a lot!

The science is presented clearly and simply, but - as important to me - the practicalities - living with this stuff - are also given. So, you'll learn about what spills, what stains, what annoys, what works but is really tiresome, and what's clever and really convenient. And she exposes the common misunderstandings and shortcuts which turn out to be false economies and dead ends, saving you time and failures of your own.

Having said that, she also advocates experimentation. Climates change, water, potting mixes, nutrients and seed stocks all vary, as does personal taste. So you'll get the "tried and trusted" approaches known to just work - and you'll also get suggestions for how you might wander of piste if you have a mind to.

A selection of specific projects are described in detail. If you decide cucumbers will be your first try, then there is a project telling you exactly how you can proceed. Same with tomatoes, peppers and so on. Some of the projects are tiny - you can make them in minutes. Others will build a major asset you'll use for years to come.

All-in-all, this is a very knowledgeable, easy-reading book. I've really enjoyed reading it; I've re-organised my office so I can set up my own grow area at my South-facing window, and I'm enjoying deciding exactly what and how I'll do my first grow, and sourcing the components. I'll be referring to this book again and again as my experience grows along with my indoor vegetables.

I have just recently gotten back into gardening indoors, so when I noticed this book, I decided to grab it to brush up on my gardening skills. Boy, did I get lucky! It covers everything that you need to know to ensure successfully growing your own greens and vegetables. I like the way this book is organized, so you can easily go to the chapter that you need. It covers the basics with many options and then goes into advanced information. The author provides many do it yourself projects with detailed specifications that you can build to provide lighting and proper structure for your plants and there is even an Appendix showing where you can source the materials. Very helpful and a real timesaver. Highly recommended if you want to get on track, the smart way, to growing your food indoors.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent resource for growing veggies inside 20. September 2013
Von NDBG1 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to expand their growing season by growing vegetables indoors. Unlike other books on this subject, the author doesn't focus on expensive HID systems, but gives affordable DIY projects to grow many different crops inside using fluorescent light systems.

The book does an excellent job explaining the different fluorescent lights available and their uses for growing plants. Both traditional container planting and hydroponic growing methods are covered. Individual crops are detailed in the last chapters for anyone wanting to jump right into growing without delving into the technical details.

The book's real value lies in the author's personal experience growing all types of vegetables. Plenty of lessons learned and good tips are available throughout the book. This is will be my go to book this fall when I plan my indoor veggie "farm".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Information-packed, very readable, highly recommended 25. Februar 2015

I am a frustrated gardener who moved from having a huge garden to an apartment where I could have a container garden (bought two Gardeners Supply tomato success kits but had to move before I could plant them) to the apartment we're living in now where we cannot have even a container garden outside and my indoors is not sunny enough to grow anything.

Right now, I've got my tomato success kits planted with POTHOS, of all things, because I just could not bear to get rid of them after I spent so much money for them. Sweet potato vines grew in them all right, but not great. When the gardening catalogs started coming a few weeks ago, I broke down and ordered a few 7-pod LED Aerogardens to try to satisfy my raging planting impulses and give me some good clean veggies to harvest.

Then I started looking at a lot of Kindle books to try to figure out what would be the best to get. As a gardener, I can tell you that there are some really pitiful books out there. Not this one. I downloaded the Kindle sample of Indoor Salad: How to Grow Vegetables Indoors to evaluate, and after chewing through the sample, I could tell that Ginger Booth really knows her stuff. I immediately went to the Kindle store and purchased it, and I've been relishing all the information—and inspiration—this author supplies. She has a scientific background, so I am benefitting from her fiddling and testing to see what works and what doesn't—whether planting hydroponically or in soil indoors.

I'm learning things about edible plants that I've never known before, no matter how many other gardening books I've read, especially as pertains to plants well suited to hydroponics (my Aerogardens) and soil-planted veggies. (And there I was thinking I would plant some cucumbers in my Aerogardens.) Booth is already saving me money because she tells you what you do, and do not, need in terms of equipment to be successful. She encourages a curious and inventive spirit as well, which for an indoor gardener can only help!

One feature of this book is "projects" that teach you how to make and build a number of items (such as a crop lamp surround) that will boost the output of your Aerogarden or whatever other indoor plantings you might go for. The author tells you step by step how to do it, or if you decide you don't want to fool with it yourself, you can buy the pre-cut kits from the author's website (indoorsalad dot com).

I'm so impressed that I went to sign up for an account at the author's website, and I'm now just waiting to be approved so I can dive into the forums. Despite the below-zero cold outside and the lingering snow after we had a foot here in Lexington, hope is again springing eternal.... Thank you, Ginger!

Ginger is my daughter. Her sense of humor comes through in the book. She writes as though she's talking to each reader as a friend. I have grown cherry tomatoes, a variety of lettuces, herbs and flowers in my kitchen bay window in the same town where Ginger grew up in Ct.
