Hopefully, this will be successful:
It's called the "Tower Garden". If any of y'all have been through a ride called 'The Land" at Disneyworld's Epcot Center in Florida which portrays different ways of growing food around the world, you will have seen a whole section of these, only on a much bigger scale. Mine that you see here is the backyard/home-version. We just set it up yesterday. It has 20 slots for growing veggies, herbs, and/or fruit, but I only have 15 slots filled at the moment (I'm waiting on some seeds).
I bought it through my sis who has been an avid gardener all her life. She just recently became a distributor of them after having tried them out successfully over the summer here in our hot, dry climate. She said it uses so much less
water than her traditional garden, and takes so much less time and effort (no weeding)......which sounds right up my alley!
This works out perfectly for us, too, since our backyard has no room for a traditional, horizontal veggie garden, so we're going vertical!
So far, I have a couple of different kinds of kale, a couple of different kinds of chard, cucumber, green onions, a couple of different kinds of mint, stevia, a couple of different kinds of basil, wildfire lettuce, cilantro, rosemary, and thyme. The remaining slots are reserved for tomatoes, celery and strawberries. All certified organic/non-GMO.
You can pretty much grow anything in it except for root vegetables, and trees of course, oh- and also no grapes or corn.
We have 2 growing seasons where I live and the wee beginnings of the second one are upon us.
Anyway, I'm so excited about this space-age looking thing that I just wanted to share.
