Halloween spider decoration super easy and inexpensive= crepe paper and balloon. I added a smaller balloon (same type- just less air in it) for a head. next year I'm gonna add a red X made from crepe paper on it's butt.
All you need is a small amount of vertical space around a balcony or an open window which can hang or store a vertical array of drink bottles that can grow all your herbs and lettuce easily. Recycle as many of your plastic drink containers.
