    Indoor vegetable gardens aren’t just for city dwellers! Growing edibles indoors gives you year-round access to seasonal favorites and cuts down on food waste. And, no, we’re not just talking about herbs here! From spicy peppers to aromatic alliums, read on for some of the best — and easiest — vegetables to grow indoors.

    1. Peppers.

    As long as you have a warm (at least 75 degrees) and sunny spot in your home, you can easily grow several types of peppers indoors. Cherry peppers and banana peppers are great indoors, and they like plenty of space, so use a 3-5 gallon container. If you’re new to gardening, you might be better off growing peppers indoors from sprouts, not seeds. 2. Green Onions.

    One of the easiest gardening projects you can imagine! The next time you buy green onions at the supermarket, place the last one inch of them in a jar of water. Fill the jar up when it’s low and cut as needed. If you want to extend their life, plant them in soil and make sure to give them plenty of water.

    3. Radishes.

    Radishes are one of the easiest vegetables to grow both indoors and outdoors, and they’re ready to eat in just a few weeks. Keep them in a container that is at least 14 inches wide and place them in a sunny window, but make sure to move them out of the sun on hot days.
