...at least for me! For our anniversary, Don got me this neato tower garden. It is the coolest thing!! I've had my eye on it for about two years. You can read about it here.
It uses what is called aeroponics. There is no soil! Water from the reservoir goes up the middle tube and showers down on the plants. The water is full of nutrients that you add.
Right now in our tower there is kale, celery, spring mix, argula, green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, dill, parsley, cilantro, squash, bell pepper, romaine, and a few others I cannot think of on the top of my head.
I can't wait until they are ready to harvest.
The very bottom empty slots are for our tomatoes once they get big enough to go into the tower. That should be any day now.
Don has already said that if this works out we will have to invest in another one next year. 🙂
This would be great for small areas or patios. I am thinking of my sister in California.
We are still going to do a garden bed although we are running a little late. 😉 I want to grow carrots and other root vegetables. The tower doesn't grow root vegetables for obvious reasons.
