Portable Microgardens Thriving on Chicago Windowsill

Last night it snowed and the cool-weather greens--mustard, bok choy, tatsoi, miner's lettuce, wrinkled crinkled crumpled cress, and lettuces--couldn't be happier.

These mini-SIPs/portable microgardens are sitting on our south-facing windowsill getting all the light, wind, and and other weather Chicago can throw at 'em. And they are thriving.

It's incredibly easy to assemble and plant one of these little grow boxes. Step-by-step right here.

If you have another minute, head over to flickr and have a look at the Greenscaper Bob's Brooklyn Urban Garden site survey.  So many south-facing spaces, so little food...
