Today, I want to share something useful that I discovered on Superbalist yesterday (my daily online shopping experience – not that I buy much, but I so enjoy it). It’s something for your exterior living and super functional in my books.
Ta-da – I give you the BACSAC Planter Bag – the urban gardening solution. Why would this tickle my fancy so much? When I saw this practical planter bag, what immediately came to mind were images of the balcony / patio gardens that are found in typical apartment living in Europe. Since urban living is gaining huge momentum, I think that this product can make it possible for so many urbanites living in apartment blocks or houses with tiny gardens to become very much a part of the green finger community. Why should apartment living rob you of the opportunity of being a gardener?
These bags make it possible to plant colourful blooms, herbs, veggies and anything that takes your fancy. Plus – they have handles, which makes them mobile (granted for the bigger bags you going to have to grow some muscle at the same time). My hubby would love these. Since we have discovered the delight of eating veggies straight out of the garden, he has devoted a great deal of time to his veggie patch. However during the winter months it kinda grinds to a halt, because the patch has too little sun. So, he has taken to potting the herbs and some veggies in pots, which he moves around while following the sun.
I have recently once again come to appreciate the old fashion (or vintage as the politically correct term is lately) practise of potting your herbs and popping them onto the window sill as a decorative extra. It adds that warm fuzzy feeling to kitchens – and these bags are perfect for that.
Some facts about the bags: UV-resistant, virtually indestructible planter bags. Guaranteed for five years and fashioned from a 100% recyclable geotextile.
So urbanites, to quote Superbalist, lets love our everyday environment by capturing nature in a bag.
