My attempt at vertical gardening

So I thought I had this really great original idea. Well, in the end, not such much. But I’m giving it a try just the same.

I have a very small garden, and most of that is always in shade. I thought I’d take advantage of the one unused and sunny spot by planting a small vertical garden using a dollar-store shoe bag attached to the basement stair railing. Not growing a lot, some herbs, lots of lettuce, a few patio-variety tomato plants, strawberries, snow peas, and one tiny Thai chili plant. My biggest concern is not yield, it’s forgetting to water on a regular basis, once the novelty has worn off.

I’m already having thoughts of making a pasta and scallop dish using all those wonderful tiny tomatoes come July!
