Fresh DIY: Gardens that Aren’t
Five amazing DIY ideas for Growing Veggies without a yard…
This vertical garden created from a canvas shoe organizer is brilliant for two reasons: One, it’s a freaking shoe organizer that’s been turned into a garden; and two, it gets everthing off the ground to deter rascals like squirrels and bunnies from nipping at your veg.
The new book Apartment Gardening offers this clever upcycling trick: an old filing cabinet, often available at secondhand shops for under $10, is transformed into a rolling garden on wheels. DIYLife has the rundown.
When you don’t have any more horizontal space for potted plants, why not go up?These pot clips can be attached to walls, a trellis, or even to an apartment balcony, and they’re nearly invisible. Floating plants!
And lastly, from the ReadyMade blog archives, this worn, beautiful soda crate has been transformed into a vertical garden. (pictured above as first picture) No soda crate? Try a wine box, milk crate, or those wooden boxes from the craft store.

I love this unfussy and practical idea. Bring the outside in—no matter what the temperature—by relying on a rustic garden tool to make quick work of your morning accessorizing.
“I happened to have this nice old rake head (its handle long gone), which I thought was really a cool design element for such a utilitarian object. Stylistically, it works well in my rural New Mexico home—we’ve got lots of old rusty pots that we’ve pulled out of an ancient junk pile. This rake was used by our garden-loving family for well over 20 years before being repurposed.” —Jamie Crockett
