Laetitia Mailhes, a blogger on Yahoo Green, was writing about "Growing Food in a Shoebox"
What she is talking about is not literally growing tomatoes in your old Nike box, but rather taking a small amount of space, like a pot, and growing food in it.
Earthbox, a Pennsylvania-based company, has been proposing that folks do this since 1994. Its concept is beautifully simple and effective: Bring nature to you in the form of a food-growing box designed to yield gorgeous, delicious crops with minimum effort. No farming skills necessary. Just enough direct sunlight and follow the instructions! Earthboxes while Pretty and pretty much all inclusive to container gardening are a tad expensive. But I am told they are worth it. Anyway take a read of Laetitia's post and tell me what you think of container gardening in the comments page. I know this about it… You can get some very satisfying results.
Mailhes writes in her post:
"Witnessing the miracle of nature at work, from a seed buried in the soil to a plant ready to be picked and enjoyed, is bound to transform our relationship with food.
I've been enrolling people into growing their own food because I believe it is crucial for them to experience the delayed satisfaction of watching something grow. Once this experience has captured their imagination, it is a lot easier to bring them into the conversation about food security and farming-related environmental issues."So do you try any container gardening at home?
Also, what if any, types of containers do you have?
