    How long have you been involved in a community garden? I'd like to start one in my townhouse complex and I'm looking for tips to get started.

    Yes, I would like to believe that my indoor garden rocks! I was only a houspelant person and joined this site because I felt houseplants counted as farming, but after seeing all the small space solutions everyone here is thinking up, I was inspired to attempt to add vegies to my indoor garden. I haven't actually planted anything yet as the quarter at my college is still in session until final exams today. After I'm done, I'll begin planting. I've already purchased seeds and containers. I don't think the seasons will matter indoors.

    Congratulations on FOTD! Does your profile name refer to spelunking?
