Whether you only have a shelf for herbs or a whole backyard of greenery, there’s a gadget for you

Recently we learned via the New York Times that lettuce grown in outer space was just as nutritious as lettuce grown on Terra Firma. And this got us thinking: why aren’t we growing more food indoors? Without the challenges of growing astro-greens (lack of gravity being the top concern), and new kits increasingly space-efficient, there’s never been a better time to take a shot at it—or at least starting them early for transplanting outdoors in late spring. If you’ve ever wanted to grow vegetables indoors, new grow kits and lights make it easier than ever — and we can grow so much more than greens. Here are some of the new gadgets and tech to help start an indoor garden.
