"I like this book a lot. I find I can drink in the knowledge easily, and there's lots of it. The science is presented clearly and simply, but - as important for me - the practicalities - living with this stuff - are also given. So, you'll learn about what spills, what stains, what annoys, what works but is really tiresome, and what's clever and really convenient. All-in-all, this is a very knowledgeable, easy-reading book." - Amazon reviewer Chris Wesley
"Excellent resource for growing veggies inside. Unlike other books onthis subject, the author doesn't focus on expensive HID systems, butgives affordable DIY projects to grow many different crops inside usingfluorescent light systems. Both traditional container planting andhydroponic growing methods are covered." - Amazon reviewer NDBG1
"I like the way this book is organized. The author provides many do it yourself projects, and there is even an Appendix showing where you cansource the materials. Highly recommended if you want to get on track, the smart way, to growing your food indoors." - Amazon reviewer Kat
From the Author
That point of view might seem alien to you. But what it's not, is an axe to grind. I don't assume hydroponics is better, nor Aerogardens, nor container gardening. I don't insist organic is better than inorganic, nor heirloom better than hybrid seed. I consider electrical usage an optimization problem, not a moral issue per se. I assume you want happy plants and the happy yields they provide. This book's angle is to appreciate the myriad effective ways you can go about that.
Indoor Salad explains the options. It provides do it yourself projects. But even if you make none of them, you'll understand why and how those projects work. Then you can buy a ready-made solution with confidence, or devise an even better solution for your own circumstances. My angle is that I want you to be an educated consumer. I want you empowered and inspired to grow vegetables indoors your way.

P.S. Cat owners: Several people have complained about their cats eating their plants. My online friend Katherine places flat aluminum foil under her vegetable projects. She reports this works - the cats won't walk on aluminum foil.
