Build a plant box from an old Futon base


Step 5: Balcony setup

This is just to show you how I use my balcony for my plants.

As you can see I built a counter that's attached to the rails. Right now I put the box on top of it so that my tomato plants get as much sun as possible.

Once they're tall enough I'll put them on the ground and pull the leaves out of the fence I use to cover the rails ( you can see what I mean by looking at my strawberry plants).

This will act as a holder for the plants and allow me to save space at the same time.

Interesting concept. A plastic liner would be a good way to keep water from rotting the wood and if its indoors the floor as well.
