Growing veggies indoors just doesn't work, unless you have all the right equipment and the space and etc.

How about using large pots? It's what I do, so the cats and the underground critters can't get to them. Also, they contain moisture better.

Now... to figure out what to do with all the bugs!

Let us know what you decide.

I have started mine from seeds indoors and then transplant them into pots outside. But, as long as you have a good place that gets a lot of sun light you could do it inside. Another way is using the Topsy Turvy ,that they use for the tomato plants, for other type of veggies where the dog can't get to it. I have seen used for bell peppers, peppers, etc. But Peat pots are good to start the plants. Check with your local Gardening store or Lowe's.com. Some times just going to a Home and garden show helps give you ideas. Check HGTV website too and Home and garden website for ideas. Both of those are always helpful.

Sprouts and microgreens are a good place to start. Don't require much kit to start with and your first crop will only take a week.

If you're thinking vegetable vegetables most indoor situations just don't get enough light, unless you want to lay out lots of money on artificial lights. A shop that specialises in hydroponic equipment might also have some useful tips. Would be easier to get rid of the dog.

Use peat pots that will be able to be planted right in the ground without disturbing the new plants is my only suggestion. I am going to try this very thing again this spring. It hasn't worked too well for me before! :-( But purchasing plants is much more expensive!

I have an outdoor dog who loves to "landscape" (she literally pulls weeds lol) does anyone have tips for growing veggies indoors? Like fresh spinach? Grape tomatoes? Etc? I also think it would spark an interest in my 2 year old.
