How to make a DIY vertical onion tower out of a plastic bottle

This DIY is the definition of "fresh." Do you crave fresh fruits and vegetables but struggle to find good quality produce at your local grocery store? Auntie Dogma's Garden Spot has the perfect solution for growing your own fruits and vegetables at home. The best part? The project uses minimal and cost-effective materials, most often found at home.
This method for growing spring onions vertically on a windowsill is just one of the many DIY projects found on this community blog dedicated to self-sustaining, green gardening methods. 
To grow onions on your windowsill, you need a 5 liter PBS bottle, scissors, onion sprouts, and soil. The 5 liter bottle is "a practical, space-saving and green" vessel to grow onions.
The simple hack consists of preparing the planting vessel (aka the 5 liter bottle) by cutting holes into it and then filling the bottle with layers of onion sprouts and soil. Water your newly planted onion sprouts and set the planter on your windowsill.

If you have just one windowsill in your home that receives adequate sunlight, you have a prime resource to grow fresh, delicious produce and beautiful, decorative plants. Kalani Kordus shows how to make a windowbox planter using nothing more than an aluminum gutter, gutter caps, metal screws and silicon caulk. All materials can be found at your local hardware store and will result in a sleek, cool looking planter.
Design Sponge also has a fabulous suggestion for recycling beer bottles to make a gorgeous, industrial chic herb garden that will not only transform any room, but will also ensure an endless supply of cooking herbs.
