description in Wyoming if you want to grow your own food sometimes you have to
get a little creative on how to do that through the winter months but if you
have window boxes they’re a great planner to put things in in your home
windows through the winter you can use almost any container that you have as
long as it has good drainage all we need to really do is to once you’ve got the
potting soil in in your containers is to just spread the seeds throughout your
soil planting things in the house basically is just the same as growing
things outdoors you have to have the right temperature you have to have water
available for the plants or the seeds to germinate and the plants to grow and
then you have to have plenty of sunlight for those plants to keep growing once
they’ve germinated so someplace in a nice sunny usually south or west window
is a great place to put your plants so indoor gardening is a great way to enjoy
some vegetables that you’ve grown yourself and also to enjoy your
gardening habit through the winter months if you have kids in the family
you can include kids in this and then they will understand how the plants have
grown and probably be more interested in eating maybe some unusual vegetables
that the family hasn’t tried before it also improves those winter blues that we
have to deal with here in Wyoming this has been Donna Quinn for the University
of Wyoming extension you’re watching from the ground up just a few weeks ago we planted these
veggies in these window boxes so that we can have some winter gardening
experience and now we have a nice mix of a variety of different lettuces and some
other leafy vegetables to choose from and now we have the opportunity to put
together a salad for some of those flavors that we
haven’t tried before when you’re harvesting you probably want to harvest
some of the youngest leafy parts of the plant but if you are braver or really
like a stronger flavor in your salad you could go ahead and harvest some of the
older leaves as well and that will give you a much stronger flavor in your
salads you can enjoy quite a variety of different flavors in salads much
different than what we experienced from the grocery store with just iceberg
lettuce so once you have your vegetables picked you can put them in a colander
and take them on into the kitchen to wash them up if you’re looking for any
recipes you could look for our local foods guides at any of the Extension
offices across the state of Wyoming and you could also ask any questions you
might have about nutrition and food safety this has been Donna Quinn for the
