Urban gardening

One of my resolutions for 2013 is to step up my urban gardening game. I always dream about rooftop vegetable patches, but can never manage to keep anything green other than a tiny pot of chives in my cramped kitchen. This year though, I’m recommitting to it, and have some tricks up my sleeve. My thoughtful brother gave me this microgreen windowsill garden to spice up my salads, and this Mason jar wall planter looks like a great way to maximize the areas in my apartment with good light. If I can keep all those alive, I’m setting my sights on this chili-plant-in-a-can from Nudo Italia. Those should work for now, and in the meantime, I’ll just fantasize about someday having a real kitchen garden like this one.
