Tilt Out Window Planters: Small Space (or No Space!) Garden Solution

Make

Although some of our readers might have full backyards and expansive decks for gardening, others might only have a window. Not even a window box, mind you, just a window. How do you garden for real without the full outside sun? Well, you put on your McGyver hat on and get to work, that's what! Having lived in apartments that don't lend themselves to to gardening, even the small space container kind, my jaw hit the floor when I ran across this amazing tilt out garden seen over at Make recently.

It's the perfect solution for those who would like fresh items for their kitchen, like herbs, but don't get enough sun to keep them happy. It was created by the Paris-based design and architecture firm BarreauCharbonnet. Want to see how it was made?

It's hands down the coolest thing I've seen all week, but maybe I'm just geeking out on behalf of all those folks who had given up the idea of gardening that might now have a shot at creating something for their own space.
