What 'zone' am I in? And I need ideas....

15 years ago

There are way too many gardening forums for this newbie. I need to find out what zone Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, is in for my first attempting at planting a very small vegetable garden indoors.

This is the hallway at the top of the stairs to my apartment. I want to turn it into an indoor vegetable/herb garden. I'm a pauper, so I need all the frugal ideas you can come up with. Obviously, I can't afford a lot of fancy containers but need something with good drainage that won't get the flooring/carpeting wet. I'm thinking maybe a long wood picnic bench, if I can find one on freecycle or craigslist, maybe a long plastic tray of some sort to fit on top of that and then pots sitting on something so they are elevated and not sitting in the water run off.

I've never done anything like this before, so I'm not sure what I'm talking about. LOL



Oh, and, Ruthie, you started all this with your gardening pics and stories!! You should be ashamed! LOL
