A Different Type of Gardening
…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.
Here I am with my new tower garden. I am one happy camper..er gardener. 😉
The basic tower comes with five tiers. I bough the extension so I could plant more. 🙂
Yip, I cannot wait until they are taking over the tower. I love the look of green plants.
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.
Wow that is neat Cynce. Love it. I’m going to have to forward this to my Sweets. You are looking good too!!!! So healthy and glowing.
Thanks Lou. 🙂 Yes, show it to Lupe. We will keep y’all updated on its progress.
Cynthia! You look AY-May-Zing!!!! You look so healthy! You are glowing! God is good!
The tower looks great. It looks a lot bigger than it did on the website. I’m so glad you posted pics because I know for sure now that I couldn’t get it in the complex that I live in, but it is definitely on my “must have” list for the future. How awesome it’s going to be to grow your own healthy foods.
Thanks for posting the pic.
Thanks! I actually feel pretty good. Of course getting my tower probably added a little glow. 😉
Awe, I am sad that you can’t have one where you live. 🙁 But yes, definitely keep it on your “must have” list.
I like this! I want one too! This one is pretty big though…does it come in different sizes? I’m going to have to check out the link you provided and to find out more about this. Thanks for sharing.
And I agree with Auntie Emily, you look wonderful! Miss you sis! :^)
Yes, they come in different sizes. It originally comes with five layers (20 plants), but I bought the extension (2 more) to make 7 (28 plants). This is the largest a tower can get. If you get an over abundance of vegetables, I am sure Rachel could use some or Patty. 😉
Love your tower!! It is really cool. I wouldn’t mind having one like that. Do you have to keep ordering their seeds and nutrients? Doesn’t that get expensive? Maybe in the future God willing, I can get me one.
You look great!! Healthy and Beautiful!! 🙂
The nutrients aren’t that expensive because they last a few months if I remember correctly. It is approx. $20 a month, might be less. You can use your own seeds or buy them elsewhere. They have what is called rock wool that you plant your seeds in. These aren’t expensive either. We haven’t had it long enough to notice on our electricity, but it isn’t suppose to be much. It doesn’t run all the time, 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off.
Thanks Auntie! I’ve been eating healthier trying to get rid of my nasal polyps and breathing issues.
