    Hanging garden in a shoe bag

     This is on Instructables.com.  Someone posted an instructable for using a hanging closet shoe bag, using the pockets to grow herbs and other plants.  I like the idea if the shoe bag was made of strong plastic. Here's the link:

    I have to say I think this just might be a great option for me...living in Arizona and haveing a raised garden in the back yard at this time of the year with the temp's in the 105-115 range I dont even try to plant herb's outside, but if I could "hang" them towards the side of the house where there is some shade-it just might work :)        Thanks for the link!!!

    The shoe bags that I have been using for storing stuff is a heavy clear plastic.  I think it would work very well for this project.  The thinner vinyl type shoe bag may not as the weight of wet soil and plants might strain the plastic to the point of tearing. Edey

     Oh, what a neat idea! I just helped family declutter about 40 pairs of shoes and now we have a random hanging plastic shoe organizer. How cool if it could be repurposed like this!
