Growing Lettuce Inside

Spring is coming (eventually), and my thoughts turn to gardening. I've been wondering, can loose-leaf lettuce be grown indoors? I have a nice west-facing window with a deep windowsill over the sink and wonder if enough UV rays get through to merit growing it. I can't afford a grow light, so this is the way it has to be.

Why not give it a try if you have some sunlight. My husband and I have started garden plants inside and all we used was a florescent bulb and it wasn't even a grow light.

I dont see why not, as long as there is plenty of light it will be the same as growing them in a greenhouse.
