HI, I'm so glad I found this forum!!! This is great!!!!

I am starting a garden indoors for the winter. I have never done this and have a few questions.....
I will be growing carrots, radishes, tomatoes, and maybe some others. What would be the best kind of light to use. I have a florescent table that I used to grow my seedlings on, but I don't know if that is enough light, or if I need to buy one of those High pressure (expensive!!!) lights. What would be the best?
Also, can anyone recomend what type of container would be best to use for these?
I appreciate ANY help!!

are you planning on putting it outside in the spring? last year i grew plants under fluroescent light last year till they were about 4 inches tall, i then bought "grow light tubes" to fit the fixtures from walmart. the talles tomato plant grew to about 3 foot without a problem. i did however have 6 lights, and they were servicing all the 8 inch pots i could fit under them. i grew mainly herbs, but the tomatoes still did well, along with the rest

no, I'm not bringing them outside. I just want to try growing them in the house. I just didn't know how much light radishes and carrots need.
So you say the floros are enough?
