Window Gardens

Here are two contrasting views of what can be done with windows:

(1) South-facing tall windows in the basement of the house we're remodeling. Look out - I cropped this picture to just show the windows, but this area is a hard hat zone and major trip hazard right now, seriously.

(2) Take a look at this short video about vertical window veggie farms. It shows what can be done to grow your own food with no outside space for gardening and no fancy or expensive gardening equipment of any kind (none!). This is amazing, and I wish all the success in the world to this group of young people! I'll be ready next year to be inspired by this video to do inside window-gardening during those dark days of winter, and likely year-round, too. No more excuses - find a window and get started.
