Growing a Small Garden Indoors

I just read somewhere that small coolers (the throw away kind) are perfect for growing my own carrots, potatoes, radishes, and that I can grow bell peppers in a pot and grow strawberries and tomatoes from hanging pots. Is this really possible? I only have a patio door and one window (about the same size) that get full sun at least part of the day.

Before I invest in this great sounding way to feed my family some food we may not get as often unless I can grow it myself, I need to know I won't just be throwing money away trying. Is it possible? How much sun do these items need to grow and flourish?

I don't know how potatoes would work in a pot, tomatoes need eight hours of sun. I know for sure that radishes would be successful and I have heard lettuce. I tried to grow peppers in a pot on my patio that didn't work, because I probably only have 3-4 hours of sunlight, when the sun shines in SD.

I would only do this for the enjoyment of gardening if that appeals to you. I would not count on harvesting a bounty of veggies as that's unlikely.
