Calling all container gardeners…Check out this great blog entry from Matt at Post-Haste Taste (with photos) on how to make containers out of cereal boxes, plastic bags, and duct tape. Matt wanted to grow a lot of vegetables and needed them to be portable, but didn't want to spend a lot of money on expensive window boxes. His solution is a true example of sustainable gardening.
And, says Matt, he's stickin' it to the man at the same time:
With more time and thought, you can make the recycled boxes match and feature a more artistic look. In either case, it is an artistic statement in and of itself. You’re using boxes from companies that buy from the agribusinesses so that you can avoid buying from them yourself. I think I need my own art show.
What a great idea.
