Indoor Gardening Suggestions?

Does anyone have experience with gardening indoors? I live in the upper midwest and REALLY miss having garden staples like fresh tomatoes, green onions, basil, etc. in the winter. Would like to try having a bit of these in limited quantities in the house.

Where I live, it is a desperate amount of work to grow and maintain any kind of garden outdoors. The soil is lousy (I live on a coastal barrier island), it is too humid and we have every kind of pest and disease you can thik of. A friend of ours does a marvelous job raising plants in her sunroom. She grows tomatoes, peppers, radishes, and herbs. Everything is in pots and on raised platforms so she can easily work with them (she is elderly). She can control the temps and the moisture so she does very well. If you do not have a sunroom, I wouls think you could achieve the same results with grow-lights.
