How difficult it is to start a garden and is it gardening for everyone?

I have an opinion that gardening is not only for everyone but also that everyone should have a garden or at least grow something in a pot on your windowsill.
I will break down this post in three parts: Where, how and why?



Gardening doesn’t need to be outside if you want to try out for a while, or to determine is it something that you want. IKEA, and probably other manufacturers, have created simple indoor growing units that can give you an excellent start. It is not my preferable choice, I never tried it but I’m sure it is fun, and you have your little “garden plot” in your living room.
The second place can be on your windowsill. If you have flowers, you can have a few pots of herbs. It will not give you a lot, but it will be your own little paradise. Unless you live in an Earthship than you are lucky and I envy you.
I’m starting my garden in livingroom already in mid-winter. Plan….

  1. I live in the cold mountains, and the past two years I shifted from tropical houseplants to mostly edibles and microgreens indoors. It is amazing how much of my fresh food I can raise. I have five medium windows with pots in them. Microgreens are my super producers, but herbs, chili peppers, bunching onions, aloe, and spider plants (edible) make the nicest flavor enhancers to my soups and salads. I also have potato plants, and kale. I poke peas and beans in, but just eat their leaves. My winter season is six months, and I love indoor gardening.
