I wanted to start BIG in my new venture to try to live a more peaceful, sustainable lifestyle. “Honey, I want to turn this whole side of our house into a giant vertical garden!!!” I said it with such enthusiasm. It wasn’t greeted with the same gusto as I gave in my delivery. NO??? Hmmmm. True hubby may have a point that I have killed many a plant in my day. But just this last year I managed to grow a whole potted garden on our patio that lived, nay, THRIVED for almost 10 months until we went on vacation and my brother house sat and neglected to water for a whole week in 100 degree heat (SOOOO not my fault!). But still, perhaps his is right that I should find something small for now, especially with “winter” coming, so I don’t get too discouraged if Better Home and Gardens is not knocking on my door asking for some vertical gardening tips. So I searched the web and found these great little indoor herb containers. They are a little on the pricey side at $34.99 a pop so I am just starting with some basil. But they are very visual pleasing and such a great idea for repurposing a hand crafted  wine glass! I can’t wait to get my basil and try it out!
