Maybe it's time to put your love of terrariums to good use and grow some good eats? Check out this exciting trend of "Window Farming" at the Mother Nature Network. I know the apartment dwellers have been working on balcony and windowsill gardens but- I really think this is something new and different. Have you had any experience with window farming?
The article explains but man-o-man: check out windowfarms.org and prepare to peruse for a while.
NPR hit the airwaves last weekend with a story on a bourgeoning urban gardening movement that started out in Brooklyn (natch) and has caught the attention of greenthumbed apartment-dwellers in cities across the globe who, for one reason or another, would rather grow indoors instead of take to the roof. It’s called window farming and it’s a year-round, hydroponic (soil-less) vertical gardening technique that requires recycled 1.5 liter water/soda bottles, a fish tank air pump, plastic tubing, and clay pellets — all stuff that can be acquired on the cheap from a recycling bin, hardware store/gardening center, and pet store (windowfarming.org also offers a start-up kit). A window that gets plenty of sunlight would also be most helpful.
