True.

Plus, if one had really annoying, nosey neighbours (as one sometimes does ) and they suddenly saw racks of vigorous growing plants reaching for the light, it is possible they could become suspicious.

Anything is possible I guess. LOL

Wouldn't stop me growing indoor plants though.

Fluorescent lighting is very low use unless you have a huge installation of it as in a commercial MJ supply set up.
Well I would hope that's true, I wouldn't want to use extra lighting anyway.

I knew a lady who raised prize winning African violets, so I'd have a heads up. It's more than rosemary or peppers id want, but I'd need one of those little mini greenhouses, I've seen them sell for about 40 bucks. I used to have them....the idea of veggies was just something that popped in my head. I miss having a yard. It's just a pipe dream anyway til I get some other things taken care of, esp the financial stuff. Plus I'd need to be able to do this, nothing says stupid like starting a pet project n not finishing it, and I'm known for that.

Lightbulb But in all seriousness...

Given the poverty, and deyeriorating downtowns, why can't some of these buildings be fixed up to grow vegetables?? By some (hate to say it) non profit community garden? As long as the building was structurally sound it would keep the veggies safe. There's grants to tear buildings down, grants to build community gardens....why not combine them in a smart way??

I think it's a really great idea.

They're doing a lot of neighbourhood gardens here in Australia these days. I remember one near a place I lived years ago and it's been going strong for several decades. A suburban garden I'm meaning - open-air gardens usually on vacant blocks, tended by local volunteers who can then use what's grown. The problem is that it's difficult to find such a space in the cities these days and then there is the need for council approval and all of that.

I'm near the beach and the soil is pretty sandy so by the time I buy good soil and compost and then the plants, it gets pretty costly. One moment it's drought and the next it's flooding rain, so some years I just give up. The only really good crop I had last year was baby aubergines and there's only SO much one can do with baby aubergines. At least I know they're hardy.

Most schools here have their own kitchen gardens which I think is a wonderful idea.

I remember a post that Chemar made a long time ago regarding growing things like potatoes in a container. I'll see if I can find it and post the link back here. It was just a simple planter box made with an old clothes basket.

Novel idea for laundry baskets

I have wintered herbs in the house but for me they really don't taste good grown year round indoors. You need bright light but also air circulation and a good drop in night temperature. I hope you work something out.
