      Default Apartment Gardening

      I live in an apartment with no garden space available. I've thought of doing a windowbox garden, but don't know how to start or what would grow best. Plus, I'm looking for something I can grow that would be edible, too. Any suggestions?

      Also, I have a black thumb. It is so sad. I kill even aloe plants. Heck, my sister kills cacti.

      You can grow all kinds of edibles in containers. I grow herbs, vegetables and even fruits in containers. Our indoor garden provides some fresh eating during the winter months, to go along with the produce we canned, froze and/or dried from our large outdoor gardens last summer. Start out small, pick your favorite vegetable and give it a try. Thanks; Virginia

      You can make Rustic Wall planters too, which helps keep them off the floorspace.

      Budget101.com - - DIY Rustic Planter | rustic wall mason jar planter | Uses for Mason Jars

      Herbs, dill, rosemary, thyme, cilantro- all are easy to grow. We've grown tomatoes indoors as well, but you have to be prepared to pollinate the flowers using a q-tip.
      ~Enjoy!~

      I can hook you right up with that.

      Check out this video of a working system.

      Here is the website with instructions and people you can ask if there are any problems.
