Short on garden space, but longing for your own veggie patch? What about this clever DIY project?

Easily accomplished in a weekend, the planter boxes are made from recycled guttering. Rust patches for drain holes, a bit of potting mix and some seedlings and you can have an instant garden. And oh! This would also make a great divider in your yard to provide some privacy.
