Thanks everyone! We do have grow lights and our oldest son gave us a hydroponic system for Christmas and some started Basil. I was leery of the chemicals you have to use so after growing the Basil (which had leaves as big as your hand!) I put it away. I have recently come across an article on organic hydroponics so we will see. We have grow lights and have grown lettuces and spinach in dirt all winter. We also belong to a food co-op and get a lot of our organic groceries from them. I am most definitely going to clean out our storage this winter so we can replace the stuff that is over 5 years out of date.
