I always grow in my basement. It is my winter hideout and a very important part of my overall gardening scheme.
 This is a little corner room in my basement where I do mushroom culture and plant micropropagation. I have air comming into the basement that is filtered through a Hepa Filter. That is a Flow Hood I built with a Hepa Filter in it, sitting on the table. I do all my tissue work in front of it. I hardly ever get contamination which tells me I designed it right. It looks a little messy right now since I have been outdoors gardening and building stuff all summer. Im getting ready to clean it down and crank it up and grow some Portabellos and some Oysters. Im dying for some fresh fried Oyster mushrooms! They go nicely in your stuffing at Thanksgiving too.
Sorry! I just had to show off my Cabbage FilderKraut. Im making real German Saurkraut right now. Its just starting to smell up the place which starts my tummy to growling. I have to ignore it untill it is completely ready. Pray for me. Please.
 
This is my vegetable grow area in my basement. That is a 1000 watt grow light with an in-line fan drawing the heat off and dispersing it into the rest of the basement. I dont need a heater when the 1000 watt and the 400 watt lights are on. I also have a 74 hole lettuce raft that you can just see the edge of in the bottom of this photo. Thats where I use the 400 watt light.  It stays nice and toasty and the plants love it!
These are 2 Quad Auto pot systems and you can see one of the Nute Reservoirs. I just happened to finish transplanting Tomatos, Peppers, Melons, Bok Choy, Eggplant and a few Water Cress plants in them about one hour ago. Ive been down there most of the day. Its cold outside but Im just starting a new crop. Hey, tell me GOD doesnt love me baby!
Auto Pots with my precious babies soaking up the piped in sunshine. Auto pots run on gravity with a Smart Valve system that gives the plants just the right amount of juice.

If you have just a little room and a little extra cash, I say why not grow a little fresh food inside? It lights up your day and keeps your mental health in top form. Plus, I love to eat fresh mators in a big fresh salad on Chrismas day...and all thru Febuary...and all through March and on and on! When the weather permits, I start harvesting my greens that are in the green house and out in the cold frames. Good food all year round. That's why I'm such a happy, healthy boy! :)

The start of a yearlong experiment in growing vegetables and herbs in my basement using growing lights. Maybe next year, I'll try mushrooms!
