Shoe Pocket Garden/ Green Wall

This works great for an herb garden, small vegetables, flowers, and as a handy way to start plants early without taking up a lot of floor space.

Step 1: Shoe Pockets

I've used this cloth hanging shoe pocket organizer.

I attach the organizer to a 24 inch piece of 1x2 wood.

Hang the assembly in a big window over a 24 inch planter pot.

Fill each pocket with potting soil.

Plant seeds.

Step 2: Keep Watered and Watch Them Grow

The clear/ white vinyle shoe organizer might provide more of a greenhouse affect.

I selected the cloth type organizer to allow for drainage.

So far my peas, radishes, and spinach have sprouted and are coming up!

I will add more photos as it fills in.

    Thank you for the feedback, much appreciated. I will update with 30 day pictures of how the little crop is growing, so far everything has sprouted and is coming up green- except for the spearmint. I'm not sure what the magic for spearmint is, but I will keep trying!
