Well, I grow orchids, but I don't grow veggies in the house. I read the article at the link. They had a lot of interesting suggestions, which I will not be doing. The closest I ever get is catnip for my kitty. They mention tomatoes, but I imagine in an ordanary room that could be difficult. Anyone grow food in the house?

GROW ORGANIC FOOD IN YOUR HOME YEAR-ROUND
OCA recommends that we all buy organic, but also "buy local". Unfortunately buying local in the middle of the winter for many Americans is quite a challenge. But you'd be surprised at the diversity of foods you can grow in your own house or apartment. You can't get any more local (or fresh) than food harvested from your own windowsill. Foods that can be successfully grown indoors include salad greens, tomatoes, green onions, garlic, alfalfa sprouts and even avocado. Here are some tips and resources: http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_1 0529.cfm
