An indoor compost garden can be a source of fresh vegetables all year round, and it’s especially cool for those who live in cold climates. Root vegetables such as the carrots, potatoes, and beets above lend themselves quite well to compost gardening, as do beans and bulbs like onions and garlic. You can also try citrus seeds that have been soaked in water or even pineapple. For leafy vegetables like carrots and beets, select specimens with the tops intact. Cut off all but 2 or 3 inches of stem. Prepare a bed of gravel, small stones and/or soil in a shallow dish or pie plate. For carrots and beets, push them into the gravel cut side down and add water to the top layer of rocks. Find out what to do next at gardenista.com.
