    I have a window box that is about 4 feet long right outside my kitchen window. I was planning to grow some herbs in there, but the box sits level with the window frame and I'm afraid the height of the herbs would block my view of the back yard. The kids are constantly back there so I need to keep an eye on them. I'm trying to implement the thought of only growing stuff that produces with all the landscaping we're doing. Do ya'll have any suggestions? Thanks!

    Why not a vine that hangs down?

    I would just keep the herbs harvested, that way they won't get too tall.
