Have you ever grown anything using hydroponics? I haven’t, but I’m intrigued by Modern Sprout. I love how simple this windowsill box looks and can definitely imagine it in my kitchen busting at the seams with herbs. Place the planter near a sunny window, set the timer, add plants and organic fertilizer and plug it in. That’s it. Even my brown thumb might have trouble messing that up!

Seed Money is definitely one of those things I wish I’d thought of first – it looks like the real thing (right down to the roll!) and grows colorful flowers and vegetables once tucked into the soil! It’s hand-illustrated and letterpress printed onto thick paper that’s embedded with the seeds. How fun would it be to leave a few in different places for unsuspecting people to find?! (via Notcot)

I think I’ve mentioned before that I grew up in a row house. That didn’t leave a lot of room for a garden or the plants that my mom wanted around, so she relied on a few macrame plant hangers in front of our living room windows. I wish I could say that these are some revved up modern versions, but they’re not. They’re exactly the same and that’s just what I love. In fact, I think I’m going to make a few for my own living room windows.Posted In grow it, make it
