Gardening Without a Garden

10 gardening ideas for apartment dwellers from  I would skip the ideas that suggest attaching something to the building or railings of the apartment you live in, as that's not a very good idea (without written permission from the owner/agent) that is, but the rest of the ideas are great.

If you have a small amount of outdoor space, or even just a sunny window, there are alot of things you can do to grow some of your own food, even if you live in an apartment!
1. Increase growing space on a tiny balcony with this DIY pallet garden.

3. Possibly the cheapest and easiest gardening idea I've seen an old shoe organizer.
4. Here's another vertical solution. You could grow an entire salad.
5. Gutters easily mount to a wall or balcony railing for plants that don't have deep roots.
6. This patio garden is made from a couple of galvanized tubs stacked together.
7. How to make a container water garden.
8. If you're looking to grow larger plants, these self-irrigating planters made from plastic tubs are a great idea.
