Heard about this book on a recent podcast. Aside from the traditional indoor herbs and lettuces, has anyone tried growing French carrots or radishes indoors under lights? Or any other vegetable?

2 winters ago I grew Romaine lettuce under lights all winter long. Gene
I've only grown the leaf lettuces based on what I had read. The Romaine grew well for you?
Will have to look that one up and see if I can get some asap. Thanks!
Gene, I trust you but otherwise I would never believe you can grow anything meaningful under light inside.
I have some house plants that do better under lights in the winter than they do outside in the summer. Just a matter of enough light and expense. Gene
Isn't it in Iceland where (geo-thermal) energy is cheap that they grow a large % of their food under lights?
ok, I'll buy that.
I can believe greens like lettuce under lights.

Last winter I had more Citrus trees than I do now. Was enjoying 1 to 2 Citrus fruits a week all winter long. Gene
Are you still growing those limequats?
Got pulled away from all things gardening the past 1 1/2 months but got my gh lights up and running today. Insulation is up and even have my mylar emergency blankets up to bounce light around. Transplanted coleus and holly cuttings today and some Meyer lemon seedlings (to be used for grafting experiment by someone other than me). Now that I'm back on track, I want to do some vegetable experiments. Do seed companies ship this time of year? I usually order after the holidays but I'm about out of any seeds to play with.
I sold, gave away all my older tress. Have plenty of seedling though. Gene
