hello would you like me to give you a list of the specific varieties I wanted off the site? I can't grow in a greenhouse..I live in a trailer park and the yard is small and the neighbors are close so wat little yard we have we share with the neighbor kids and the frong yard well I can take pictures of where I may be able to put something...but I also don't think your allowed to till the land on your lot..I know my dad pays lot rent every month too...oh ya we also have a porch..and its cold and there is snow outside,it like to do indoors to have wat I want year around..
here are the varieties anyway. Razzle Dazzle hybrid,Tomato, Steak Sandwich Hybrid,tomato,sweetie organic,purple dragon carrot,and
Beet, Cylindra Organic (burpee.com)
How do you get the purest vegtables from the purest soil? thats what I'm after..so would that mean don't use hybrid's only cerified organic seeds? or is there really not much diffrence?
I'm not sure Burpee would have any info on which varieties are ideal for indoor culture. Pretty much any vegetable can be started inside, but like I said, it's not the best space for growing to maturity. Honestly, trial-and-error might be the only way of knowing which vegetable varieties might grow inside. Like I said, though, lettuce will definitely grow well inside if it has access to decent light.
A better choice, at least during the warm months, might be to grow them outside in containers. That would be great for the plants, and you wouldn't have to worry about tilling the soil. Heck, you could just line them up against the south side of your place and take up practically no space.
Most varieties grow pretty well in containers, including all of them that you listed. Potting soil is your best bet for a soil, as it is sterile (it is basically compost and vermiculite). Five-gallon buckets make great containers, so long as you drill some holes in the bottom and line the bottom with an inch or so of gravel. Container gardening's only drawbacks are that you need to water frequently and fertilize about every other week. There are plenty of organic fertilizers to choose from, which will get you about as pure as you can get.
Organic seed doesn't mean that it contains less chemicals than non-organic seeds, it just means that the plants were grown without pesticides and inorganic fertilizers, and, in theory, not need them when you grow them from their seed. A hybrid is just a cross between two different varieties, and doesn't indicate whether it will be more or less healthy. Hybrids may actually be better for you to grow, since they tend to grow faster and be hardier than open-pollinated varieties.
