I enjoy growing vegetables in both my garden and in containers.  While some of my containers are rather traditional, one of mine is not.


This was one of my favorite projects because it was an unexpected sight for visitors to my vegetable garden.

While you would expect to see leaf lettuce poking up from a grocery bag – you certainly don’t expect to see it growing inside of one.

This is a very simple DIY project, which are the kinds that I like best.


You can grow many different types of vegetables in a grocery bag.  Would you consider doing this in your own garden?
