Living in small spaces means getting creative when it comes to gardening. I love cooking with fresh herbs, but I haven't had great luck growing them indoors with limited space. This quick DIY project by Upcycled Stuff is an easy way to grow herbs inside or out without losing square footage.
In true upcycling fashion, she took old soup cans and drilled a few holes in the bottom for drainage. You could also use coffee cans and other funky aluminum cylinders to play with the symmetry of the garden. Then add one more hole near the rim to wrap the twine through, so it can be strung vertically at the end.
Add a few coats of paint, especially chalkboard paint if you like her design, and plant your new herbs!
We love that this is not only a great space-saver, but that it's also portable. Read the full tutorial on Upcycled Stuff's Blog.
