No garden space? Wrong season?
Grow fresh vegetables indoors, year-round. And brighten your life!
The salad vegetables we eat fresh can grow indoors - lettuce, kale and Asian greens, herbs, cucumbers, beans, peppers, and even tomatoes. The lights they crave off-season can brighten your mood, too.
Starting from what these crops need to succeed, Indoor Salad explores techniques to meet those needs - from the humble CFL lightbulb, to container gardening, to hydroponics. Get growing today with do-it-yourself projects for the craftsy. Or buy ready-made systems like the Aerogarden with confidence.

Still not sure about buying Indoor Salad? Fair enough, there are other fine books in this category. Every one has its good points. And every author has a bias. This author's bias is that I want more people to enjoy growing their own food indoors. I love plants and want them and their growers to be happy together.
That point of view might seem alien to you. But what it's not, is an axe to grind. I don't assume hydroponics is better, nor Aerogardens, nor container gardening. I don't insist organic is better than inorganic, nor heirloom better than hybrid seed. I consider electrical usage an optimization problem, not a moral issue per se. I assume you want happy plants and the happy yields they provide. This book's angle is to appreciate the myriad effective ways you can go about that.
Indoor Salad explains the options. It provides do it yourself projects. But even if you make none of them, you'll understand why and how those projects work. Then you can buy a ready-made solution with confidence, or devise an even better solution for your own circumstances. My angle is that I want you to be an educated consumer. I want you empowered and inspired to grow vegetables indoors your way.
And if you ever need support on your growing journey, this book comes with online support. Drop by any time at indoorsalad.com or aerogardenmastery.com with your questions. We'd love to see what you're growing!

P.S. Cat owners: Several people have complained about their cats eating their plants. My online friend Katherine places flat aluminum foil under her vegetable projects. She reports this works - the cats won't walk on aluminum foil.
Ginger Booth is a mathematician turned programmer with a career in environmental science and engineering. A lifelong gardener, she tried hydroponic lettuce in her kitchen in 2007, and fell in love. Eager to share experiments, she leapt onto the Internet, but found too few people talking. So she set up as an online Dear Abby of indoor gardening to egg people on, and learn from the experience of thousands. Ginger has a condo in shoreline Connecticut, with crops spilling out onto the balconies and down the driveway. Reach her at indoorsalad.com or aerogardenmastery.com.
