  Farm Name
To Scaly Tailz - Thanks! I like the name because my great-grandparents homesteaded on Turtle Creek in SD. What was left of the old place burned down several years ago in a prairie fire, but the name lives on.

I know it's nearly November, but I was very disappointed this morning to awaken to snow! Oh, how I wish for the days of summer already.

  Indoor growing
Salad fixings do great in pots. But be sure to have Miracle gro on hand as they are usually heavy feeders. I grow all my lettuces, spinach even chinese cabbage in pots. Helps with pest control and I can grow all winter. Herbs are easy as well, they just need a lot of light.

  Indoor Container Gardening
Anyone have ideas for container gardening indoors during the winter months without having to spend a great deal. I think it could be done for salad makings (lettuce, radishes, tomatoes, etc...) but I'm not sure on the logistics without a lot of extras.
