How to create a vertical garden inside – cheap
Here in Maine we are always looking for ways to grow food during the colder months. With our family getting bigger and house seemingly growing smaller, we need to plant vertically in windows or against walls and it helps if it looks nice, but if you can’t make it look like a decoration, make it look interesting!
This was a great spring break project I did with my girls a few years ago.
This worked well, but make sure you have very strong hangers. We had heavy hooks screwed into a beam in the ceiling and one of the hooks broke! However, the shoe holder had no issues what so ever.
Another great example of how a simple vacation project takes on a life of its own.
Started moving our seedlings into the shoe organizers today.
I punched holes in the bottom pockets to feed hump strings to the top for the peas and beans to grow up.
Filling the packets from the outsides, hoping to maintain balance.
I put in a few Wally World seedlings, just to test them out. Strawberries and a Tomato plant – this should get interesting.
After the first 4 on the bottom I realized I will probably need drainage.
I put rocks in the bottom, I’m hoping that will do it.
