I was astonished at how long my tomatoes endured indoors the first time I moved a pruned plant inside. Had I included manure, it would have lasted much longer. Tomatoes do well in containers, but they love sunlight, so make sure your tomato gets the best seat at the window.
Carrots are great indoors if you'll provide them 4-5 hours of bright light daily. Choose the round varieties and ensure that seeds are well apart so the roots will have enough room to gather nutrients. When it's ready for harvest, you'll see the tops above the soil.
Lettuce is surprisingly simple to grow and does not use up much room. It's an amazing vegetable to grow indoors in a sunny window. Pick a leaf lettuce variety because this variety allows you to grow back the plant after you harvested the leaves, providing you more lettuce without the hassle of a full work.
Spicy and tasty arugula grows rapidly. Every plant can provide you multiple yields when you cut the bigger leaves and keep the little ones in the middle. Arugula loves colder temperatures, which makes it an impeccable vegetable to develop indoors.
Ginger is a beautiful plant similar to bamboo. The best approach is to get some at a natural food store, as these have fewer chemicals, soak and wash it in water for a couple of hours to remove any growth hinder chemicals, then put your root in a wide, airy pot and slightly cover it with soil.

Scallions or green onions will let you have the same onion taste without the need for extra space. You can begin growing scallions from seeds or purchase a few scallions at the farmers market or grocery stores. If there still roots in it, stick them in your container with soil, covering them up to the white bulb, and then see them grow. Gather the tops occasionally.
Microgreens are perfect vegetables to develop indoors. Microgreens grow easily and quickly, they need very small space, and are completely delectable. To make microgreens flourish, simply scatter one variety of microgreen seed mixes in your well-drained, shallow container. Cover it with a fair covering of soil, and do your first harvest when the “real leaves” pop up.
Once an ornament and now known as a superfood, kale is an extraordinary vegetable to develop inside your home. Like arugula, you can gather the better leaves and leave the little ones for a later reap. Plant a couple of seeds in the medium-size container and cover it with 1/2″ of soil. Keep the dirt sodden and keep one plant for every pot, as kale can get really big.
Potatoes are seed tubers and are perfect for indoor gardening as they effortlessly grow in huge pots, or plastic sacks, and deliver satisfactory yields of delectable new potatoes. When planting the seed tubers, leave some space at the peak point of the pots for manure to earth up the plants as they grow. The peek of the sack can be moved down at the beginning, then rolled up, as needed.
I know lemons are not vegetables, but they are perfect for so many dishes that I feel like a criminal if I will not include lemons in my list since I’ve been growing it in my homestead year-round. Dwarf lemon trees are wonderful houseplants. They can provide juicy, full-size lemons perfect with vegetable and meat dishes. You can begin with lemon seeds or purchase a dwarf lemon tree from nurseries.
