We planted a vertical pumpkin patch in our tiny urban backyard

With urban living comes many advantages. Jules and I both walk or ride our bikes to work, we are a few minutes walk from a zoo, there countless numbers of cafes, restaurants, bars, playgrounds, etc. within walking distance. But there are also some disadvantages. Real-estate is a valuable commodity where we live and there aren't many lots that would accommodate the size garden we wish we could have so we have to get creative.


Make a hanging garden of jam jars

Love it. Rope + soil + clean jars and some succulents, and you have a hanging garden.

This would work super well with herbs, too, or small flowers like violets!
