Well, everyone needs to go outside sometimes! I'm trying to remain optimistic this year. I live in the eastern part of WA state where we usually have not summers. However, last year, we went for a least a month with temps around 110-120, but it always cools down at night. I grow in containers because I live in a condo, and it was really difficult to keep up with the watering. I've grown tomatoes in pots and hanging mesh bags and have done herb gardens in pots. One of my friends grows heirloom tomatoes but has a large outdoor garden. I don't think there's a houseplant that I haven't tried. I brought my potted geraniums indoors last summer because they were frying and wintered them over and then put them outside this spring. There are a lot of flowering houseplants that do well under lights if you ever get in the mood for something decorative. You are going to have challenges with your perennials indoors because you will have to keep transplanting and it could become a space issue. Bugs are a way of life, and many are beneficial for pollination and natural pest control. I've had pest issues indoors too when plants are spaced too close together without enough airflow. Anyway, thanks for sharing, good luck with your project.
