Micro-Garden Madness: You Showed Us Your Stuff

Earlier this week, we told you about some of the people who are trying to make micro-gardening go big by sharing their DIY tips and selling products designed to make gardening in a small space a piece of cake. Many readers of The Salt let us know they were all for it.

As KL Gamble wrote on Facebook, "Maybe it's time to bring back victory gardens even if on a smaller scale," referring to the gardens the government encouraged citizens to plant to supplement their dinner plate during World War I and World War II.

It turns out plenty of readers of The Salt are already micro-gardening with some impressive DIY chutzpah. We've chosen a few of our favorite images of micro-gardens from around the country that make the most of small spaces and idle containers.
