Living Wall - Earth-friendly Friday

I love to garden – who doesn’t like to spend their weekends knee deep in dirt?

I look forward to the flowers and the fun. I scan seed catalogs starting in January, then I plan my planting, picking and then preparing some yummy homemade meals. There's no better way to cook than to go outside and grab some goodies right out of my front yard garden to whip up some homegrown goodness.

I use my front parking strip to plant flowers and veggies in raised beds and I’ve been doing it for over 20 years. But I never thought of creating a living wall. If you want to see more photos click on the "living wall" and scroll down to take a look. If you live in Portland, take a trip downtown to Modera and check it out for yourself.

I think this will be my next project-or maybe my husband's.

How about you? Any innovative ideas about gardening you’d like to share?

Wow! I like that idea. As for innovative ideas...I leave that up to my husband who grew organic herbs wholesale for like 18 years. Alas, I have no green thumb, not even a green finger tip.

Cool picture. I miss having a garden. I keep saying I'm going to start one, but I have yet to. I think I need a greenhouse or at least a good fencing system. We have so many critters here.

Modera is beautiful. Great vertical garden.
