I could use some advice on this, too--When I move, I will have a teeny tiny patio and a sliding glass door--I could maybe try growing some things, but I think I'd get starter plants...
I don't know where to start, but I really want to have fresh veggies and herbs!!

I have been "growing" green onions in my kitchen. emoticon

I did not intend to do it, but my onions have been sprouting and growing... I like it, a continuing supply of green onions. (Of course, I had to go buy some more onions.)

Thanks! We have an onion that started growing. So we stuck it in a pot. It's currently in the kitchen window. We may move it to the living room in a couple weeks, we'll see how it does. Thanks for the ideas! They're always welcome!

My daughter grows tomatoes in pots on her balcony. She grows both cherry tomatoes and regular sized ones.

My sister in lot is growing various spices and celery on hers.

I have spices, hanging tomatoes, and lettuce on my balcony.

I think there are a lot of things that can be grown on a patio.

What types of things can I grow in a garden that will be on a patio? I did a garden when I was in high school but that was many years ago and it was outside. I would love to know what I can grow and all the essentials needed to do it. My patio does not get A LOT of sun but at certain times of the day is gets some!

Thanks!!

Give it a try and let us know. I was thinking the
same thing. I have one big sliding door, don't use
it much and it gets the morning sun.
Same with the dining table. May give it a try.
It's an inexpensive experiment to say the least

Wow! Sounds great!

I don't have a lot of experience with indoor gardening, but I am growing herbs in my kitchen with a lot less light than what it sounds like you have.

I have some lettuce and a hanging tomato plant on my balcony. I don't see why you couldn't grow them indoors.

I don't have a balcony or anything, but I do have lots of indoor access to sunlight - as in a whole WALL of floor to ceiling windows. Anyone ever try gardening indoors? Let me know what you think.
