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.
