Outside the second story window of an apartment building on Hampshire Street in Cambridge...

The gutters have been repurposed....

Perhaps most intriguing is the upside-down tomato plant.

It was quite nice to meet you at the Slow Food event on Saturday. Your salads were most yummy!! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Blogger Julia DATE:6/28/2009 07:50:00 PM Reeni -- I agree! I was never that ingenious when I lived in an apartment.

Heather and Psychgrad -- I'm curious to see how they grow when the tomatoes get bigger.

Lori Lynn -- I'm impressed with the homespun version.

Karen -- really lovely meeting you as well. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Marc @ NoRecipes DATE:6/29/2009 08:08:00 PM Hahah that's really inspiring, though I'm sure my condo board would kill me if I were to do that on the exterior of my 7th floor apartment. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Blogger Amy DATE:7/02/2009 09:28:00 AM Awesome!
