While I have never enjoyed gardening, my husband and I just moved into our first purchased home together, and it would be a great idea to grow our own vegetables! This would be great for starting our gardening next year, since it is too late in the year to start growing now.

This is such a great idea. I love the idea of using a metal shelf. This is actually what I have started this year with my onions. I attached grow lights to the shelves that I will be using. I love the suggestion of the peat pots. I was trying to figure out what to use, and there are so many options that this was a welcome suggestion. I can't wait to start my seeds, and with all of the good info on this page, I am very motivated!
