I heard about window farming on NPR today. While I have a very large yard, it is also very shady. I really only have a small corner that gets enough sun to grow veggies. This idea caught my attention, because I also have a TON of south-facing windows, which I could use for a window farm! Year-round herbs and leafy greens, here I come!
This would also be a great class science project for elementary school children. It would allow them to see firsthand how plants grow… not to mention it would be a fun craft activity to prepare the bottles and such.
