Présentation de l'éditeur
Why is it hanging? That’s so it can be vertical, saving space, without needing a strong structure that will keep it from tipping over. Each tier drips onto the tier below, making the most efficient use of water. You can put a basin under the bottom to catch the last drips.
Even if you have a back yard, like I do, you can now have a garden without digging up your yard or flower beds. No picks and shovels. No weeds, no hoes. No grass invasions. No rabbits. No cats and dogs digging. No stooping, bending, and kneeling. And, a benefit I didn’t expect, having the plants at eye level when you care for and harvest them without having to crawl around on the ground!
So now, just a few steps outside your kitchen, your can get your fresh chives, cilantro, basil, little lettuces, strawberries, and tomatoes without going out into the rain (or blazing sun, depending on where you live).
It seems like I’ve always had some sort of garden just about everywhere I’ve lived. But it’s always been about more than saving money, or having fresher veggies, or even the convenience. To me, there’s some kind of mysterious internal pleasure in growing things. Maybe it’s the witnessing the miracle of a seed turning into a plant. Or the fun of sharing the experience with others. Whatever it is, I like it, and I hope this little book will help others enjoy gardening even on a balcony in the big city!
