Want to grow some of your own food but don't have a yard?

WindowfarmsTM are vertical, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield edible window gardens built using low-impact or recycled local materials.

You can grow up to 25 fresh live vegetable plants—lettuce, herbs, snap peas, cherry tomatoes, peppers, kale, small squash, edible flowers, and many more—in a normal 4'x 6' window in your home. That could be a salad a week.

Love it!

Thanks for sharing this link Martha!

I love this innovative solution to growing food in cities and northern climates, and I am eager to test this out as a winter indoor garden in my home! Have you tried it?

In friendship,
Jade

Trying

Hi Jade, isn´t that amazing!!!!! I am trying it right now but as I have a huge area to grow our food I have not tried in a large scale. But one of my best friends did. And it is amazing........I will send you some photos soon. Wow winter. Ufffffff I do not like it...I lived in maine a year and a half and I almost died......I came home so sick........ I have an amazing photograph work there, the best, but my soul did suffer so much...even though I saw the aurora borealis....Where do you live?
