I always thought that the future of Detroit was converting all that unused land to farms. That's a start. :-)

Wonderful adaptive re-use. jjaba loves the engineering with the window posts. If these were vegetables, you'd have them from farm to table rather quickly.

It reminds jjaba of his tenure at Univ. of Ill. in Urbana. There, residents grow corn out their windows. Boil the pot of water before picking corn, then pick, shuck, and boil. Now that's fresh. There's nothing like fresh sweet corn like that.

jjaba, urban gardener growing about 17 crops this year. (on land in great amended soils.)
