Vertical Gardening

I am feeling the mid winter blues and catching the bug for vertical gardening. 

I love the idea of planting edible plants but wonder if I would be able to keep them alive. 

My girlfriend, Patti, in California has tons of succulents growing in her backyard garden and this year experimented by planting a variety of her succulent plants in a frame with chicken wire - it turned out wonderfully.  Piece of art!

I do not have any sunny winter locations in my home so ... supplemental lighting??  Watering indoors?

Oh, but it's a wonderful dream for a mid winter day.
