Cool Decorating Trick No. 6


A creative and economical way to build one of those coveted vertical gardens. Turn a pocket shoe organizer into a veggie patch! You may have read my post last year on the woolly pockets, so this idea of using a canvas pocket shoe organizer is a brilliant and much cheaper alternative! From intructables.com.

What an amazing idea. I'm going to forward your blogpost to my best friend who has a tiny garden and loves growing her own herbs and veggies! Thanks for sharing!

Very Clever. A great herb garden for not a lot of space. Not sure how the tomatos will do though. Mine always get so huge!

I've always wanted my own little herb garden, but have feared furry critters would leave their "mark" on my basil and rosemary. This would totally solve that problem. I think I'll try it!
