Winter Veggies Without a Greenhouse

I was thinking of starting seedlings indoors now and growing the smaller varieties of vegetables in my house. I'm going to try to grow lettuce for sure, but what about other veggies? Last year we grew herbs and put them in front of the kitchen window. I'm going to try that again as anything fresh and green and homegrown is a boon in the wintertime. I can grow at least 4 trays of plants in front of one of my sunny windows and they do well there.

Help me out, please, what are some things you have grown in the winter indoors?

    @naomi.kohlmeier I brought my outside plants inside to grow for the winter. My kale is getting leggy but the spinach and swiss chard are doing great. I have already taken two cuttings off the plants. How about trying chives or green onions too. Maybe some herbs.

    I have a large south-facing bay window. In winter I bring my bay and rosemary plants indoors and keep them there, along with pots of basil , parsley and chives, a tray of microgreens, deeper trays of lettuce and spinach that I let get a little bigger. I still have space for a couple more pots, so this year I am trying cherry tomatoes to find out if they will produce.
