Food crops in bottles ? Why not ? Just try it !

Recycling ? Not to make plastic again, but to grow vegetables and herbs at home.

Seeded yesterday: parsley and basil.
Thyme will germinate soon
You can hang your bottles at the fence.
These are pansies, but it can be vegetables or herbs of course. It’s up to you to make your choice. Anyway, growing fresh food crops in bottles gives you some food security. Just do it !
