WOW! Awesome!

RE: Hanging Kitchen Window Garden

Looks like a monkey might come swinging through any minute.
I see you have a lot of yours on flat boards. I have found a gold mine of such...a man at the end of our street turns old cedar fence boards into rough cabinets, shelves, and crafts of all kinds, so I have an endless supply of mounting boards for my orchids. They love the cedar fence boards, so much that I have had to up size the boards to accomidate their roots!


RE: Hanging Kitchen Window Garden

Thanks! :-)

The orchids on flat boards are as I got them from Andy's Orchids. The Hoyas and most of the other mounted orchids are on tree fern. Some others are on unidentified hunks o' wood. When the remnants of H. Ike brushed by two weeks ago, we got hundreds of pounds of weeping willow limbs and bark along with miles of wisteria vine for mounting planty things.

Somewhere in the kitchen garden is a small wooden monkey hanging from a basket.
