Thoughts of freshly picked veggies or herbs from your garden may seem like a distant memory thanks to the frigid temps and the thick layer of snow that likely covers your garden. However, winter doesn't have to get in the way of your green thumb. Grow your own micro garden indoors.

With a few basic supplies and a little patience, you can grow your own fresh herbs, sprouts, wheat grass and more in your house throughout the winter months. The fresh greens will add a touch of the great outdoors to your space and give you something to do on those cold, snowy days. You can also start seeds using this method so that they will be ready to plant in the spring.
