When I lived in College Park, MD I had a great indoor garden. I continue to do that today and have discovered some really nice, self-watering Lechuza Fiberglass planters
from an online place called Newpro
containers. Now when I go away on business travel, my plants get the water they need. I grow lettuce, cabbage, and tomatoes indoors year round. Nothing tastes better than picking and eating them fresh. It's a tip that took me awhile to discover.
