Smile Hanging garden

Hey guys! So ignore the fact that my trailer is gutted right now... I like to daydream about how awesome it will be and I was thinking about how to incorporate plants in my home. I was thinking how cool would it be to have a mini hanging sort of 'garden' or herbs on the fridge cabinet wall since I have so many windows in the front of my trailer? Some inspiration:

What do you think? Has anyone done this in their Stream?

Keep on truckin!

One of my friends has a big moho, and carries BIG pots of plants. She even has one of those tomato hanging vine things and gets tons of cherry tomatoes for salads, etc. When they are on the road, the low to the ground plants are stowed in the garage - under floor storage lockers, and the tomato plant rides in the shower I think. I'm sure the productivity of the tomato vine is compromised by being bumped around when on the road, but she still gives away plenty.

For something like a little herb garden, all you'd need would be a plastic dish pan or something similar to carry them when you're traveling, then just hang them back up on the wall when you camp.

Why not if you want to?


Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

I thought about doing something like this. I saw a picture on Pinterest of different kinds of lettuce growing in a hanging garden ( like one of those over the door shoe holders) I saw one in a catalogue and ordered it but it turned out to be made of hard plastic so not as flexible or moveable as I had hoped. Since we'll be traveling a lot this spring I gave to a friend to use this season. I may buy one of the over the door shoe holders ( the cotton one, not the plastic one) in the future and give it a try. It can travel hanging on the inside of the shower door and I'll hang it outside when were at our destination. You could do herbs in this too.

I do have my tomato plants in pots this year and may consider seeing how one travels if we head out in August. It's heavy though so may be more of a pain then it's worth. I do like Paula's idea of a a moveable tub/pan for herbs.

Isn't there a certain kind of potting soil that's really lightweight?
