I recently had the urge to grow something, no idea why… maybe my subconscious Vancouver Greenest City Goal duty….who knows? ANYHOW, I of course went to ye olde Google to see what I could dig up (wait for it… that will become hilarious shortly…) and I came across Patch Planters. They’re a local company that makes indoor planters and just launched a Kickstarter Campaign. So I emailed the company and picked a planter up from their Gastown office, bought some plants, and proceeded to document putting the whole kit and kaboodle together…

BOOM, you know have your own indoor organic herb garden.

I was pretty dam pleased with the result and will shortly have my own home made pesto. Win, win.
