Has anyone had any luck trying to supply a goodly portion of their vegetable diet over winter by growing vegies in pots under lights?
How's it done well? Right now the little flats of spinach and mesclun mix look fine a little leggy but fine I increased the light and I am using the grow lux wide spectrum lights to provide the lighting. The cucumbers are coming up great and will need to be repotted but how do I do this well.
If I'm going to go to the trouble of trying to set up a garden in the basement I may as well do it right and well from the start. Do I need to paint the wall for better light reflection? What have people grown? I want to try and supply at least 20 to 25% of our vegies out of the basement this winter. Lofty goals but if I can just think what can be done next year. There has to be a way to this and even with a little variety, bok choy got sewn last week and this week I want to do another pot of Baby Butter Lettuce some of the seeds are for the Japanese market and are made for containers which I hope will help. Tomatoes are tiny tims etc so that should help with size constraints but has anyone got any tricks or tips to make this little experiment work better.
