Plant carrot seeds in deep pots at least 8-12 inches and allow decent spacing when planting to give them room to grow. Allow them at least 4-5 hours of sunlight and grow in a cooler spot if you want them a bit sweeter. Carrots are very easy to grow indoors and it’s fun to watch them grow into unique colors and shapes.
Not only is spinach rich in nutrients and vitamins, but this leafy green is the easiest crop you can grow indoors because it grows back in 4 weeks after harvesting and doesn’t need much special care. Spinach requires regular watering, fertilizing, and the perfect soil.
Consider growing a beautiful lemon tree right in your own home. Not only will it brighten up a room, but it will definitely send a sweet, citrus aroma all throughout the house. When choosing lemon seeds, it’s best to pick out “Meyer” lemon or “Eureka” lemons, since they’re ideal for indoor growth. Be sure you give your lemon tree at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day and watch carefully for bugs!
Make green onions super accessible in your home by growing them right on your windowsill. You can easily take your leftover onion roots, place them in water, and watch them grow or you could start from seeds and bulbs. Green onions are easy to grow all year round and will definitely save you a trip to the grocery store.
Tomatoes love to grow in the warm, summer sun and are really fun to grow. Choose indoor-friendly varieties like Red Robin, Tiny Tim, Toy Boy, and Florida Petite. Watch them fruit within 4-6 weeks and you’ll have fresh, sweet tomatoes ready for a hearty meal.
