Growing Vegetables Indoors

Few vegetables grow well indoors without special lighting, but you can get good results with chives, parsley, rhubarb (forced) and witloof chicory (French endive, forced).

  1. Transplant small clumps of chive from the garden into containers and harvest leaves.
  2. Start a parsley plant from seeds sown outside in a pot or other container around August 1. Move the plant indoors before heavy frosts and harvest the leaves.
  3. To grow rhubarb indoors, move rhubarb clumps (crowns) into a warm, dark basement after they have been thoroughly chilled outside, usually about the middle of November. Keep the crowns under moist straw. Harvest rhubarb leaf stalks (petioles) when they are about 12 to 15 inches long.
