I was in Alaska a couple of summers ago and, at one of our cruise ports, there was a little shop that sold travel adventures. Outside the building were old canvas backpacks (rucksacks) that were being used as planters. Totally cute! What made me think of it today was something I saw while I was out shopping. It was a “hanging herb kit” — basically a multi-pocket hanger made of heavy twill in which you’d put soil and herbs. Then you hang it against a tree or building or whatever. Finding an old multi-pocket backpack or travel bag at one of the thrift stores would accomplish the same thing that I saw in Alaska. These were planted with flowers, but herbs or even small vegetables could be planted in the pockets.
