For busy urbanites living in small places, creating a growing green space in the home is a bit of an ideal. And growing your own vegetables, if you do not have a balcony, is practically impossible.
This postcard garden, or Postcarden as it is called, is a clever and very tidy solution:
Exhibit A: The garden upon arrival in your letterbox:
Exhibit B: The postcard unfolded, with seeds in the bottom. You just add water:
Exhibit 3: approximately one week later, your garden is ready to harvest and toss with a vinaigrette.
Without being too much of a gimmick, this mini-garden is part of a macro-trend to consume as locally and organically as possible, as well as to create something fresh and new by hand.
The how-to video is very well done–check it out here.
