It's an idyllic thought - opening your kitchen window to reach out and pick herbs or produce for use in your next meal. But it's really a possibility - and here are four examples and a few posts from our archives to prove it:
• 1 Imperfectly Natural shares some tips for creating a kitchen container garden on your window ledge.
• 2 Earth Boxes in a Chicago apartment from last summer's My Great Outdoors.
• 3 A private herb box via The Kitchn
• 4 That looks like basil in this planter from a Country Living article on creative window boxes.
Whether you live in an urban, rural, or suburban setting, a window box at the kitchen window is a do-able project that puts fresh foods at your fingertips.
