When you’re selecting vegetables to grow in an indoor organic garden, your best choices are usually smaller cool-climate and early-season plants. The following are the common vegetables for growing indoors.

1. Lettuce and spinach

Lettuce and spinach are two leafy green vegetables that are very easily grown in indoor gardens. They’re easily cultivated, especially the smaller lettuce varieties like miniature Tom Thumb head lettuce, because smaller varieties tend to grow more quickly. Most of the various types of lettuce will be ready to eat after about 25 days.

2. Carrots

Carrots can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes; they can come in colors like white, red, purple, and even yellow. The common carrot we have today is orange and has been domesticated for its wonderful texture and flavor.

Begin planting the seeds in your organic garden about twenty days before spring’s last frost; this will give them time to set into the soil and get a firm hold in the earth. Planting them too late may also shock the seed and keep it from ever budding.

3. Tomatoes

Successfully growing tomatoes is not limited to homeowners who are fortunate enough to own a large plot of ground. You, too, can enjoy full-flavored homegrown tomatoes if you live in an apartment or townhouse, even in the heart of the city. Growing tomatoes in containers is an easy way to employ your green fingers and enjoy fresh veggies no matter where you live.

4. Cabbage

The cabbage soup diet is popular to people who want a quick fix in their weight loss journey. The week-long plan will help one drop as much as ten pounds. Growing cabbage for your diet is a nice way to ensure that you get the best-grown cabbage in town. But growing cabbage involves art and science. Cabbage can grow especially well in fertile soils maintained in your organic garden. Variants of cabbage include green, red, and even purple cabbage. The shapes of the head also differ from round, flattened, or pointed. Most variety has smooth leaves. Some have crinkly textured leaves like the Savoy type.

5. Onions

Onion is a wonderful cool weather vegetable that’s easy to grow. The climate should be cool to mild. The first step is to obtain your onion seeds at your local nursery. Soil selection is your next goal. These plants can be grown on your patio in a pot or planter of your choice. The idea here is to select a pot that is approximately 10 inches in depth. All potting containers should have drainage holes to release excess water.

6. Potatoes

Potatoes are easy to grow all it takes is a little patience and a tiny bit of work. When you are starting out you are going to have to get them in seed form, most nurseries don’t sell potatoes as a plant. Find a good spot in your organic garden with soil that isn’t to think and drains fairly easy.

7. Garlic

Growing garlic is simple, and it has great. Garlic is used in Eastern cultures for its favorable health qualities. Garlic is from the allium genus; it is a sister to onions and grows very similarly. First, you don’t need seeds to plant garlic because they are their seeds.
