...urban gardening...

with summer in full swing, it's been a treat to chomp on fresh veggies straight from the garden. not just for hippies anymore, i've enjoyed building and growing my balcony garden with a variety of produce from spinach, arugula, cucumbers and snap peas to strawberries, blueberries, and tomatoes. it seems that no one knows how easy it really is to have a personal garden even in urban settings.

not only are these rooftop gardens and living roofs amazing, it's taking advantage of open or unused space. these lovely ideas came from one of my favorite sites, re-nest—creating amazing design by reusing old or vintage materials.
