I unpacked and uncovered the two Tower Gardens
that last November I cleaned up and put into storage!
One was taken apart and covered up and stored in the patio.
The other taken apart and put on shelves in the garage.
This year I said to Sherry –
lets spit them up – one in the enclosed patio
and the other one on the back patio!
They got so big – that it was difficult working
all around them to pick cucumbers and tomato’s!
This one will be all different lettuces – herbs – chard
some bee flowers – mostly leafy plants!
This one will be cucumbers – tomato’s – peppers –
celery – radish – plus others –
I needed space for the vines to spread out.
We also are going to plant potato’s in large pots
like you see in the background.
I did this for the first time last year
and had 30 or 40 potato’s – small ones but tasty!
Our indoor Tower Garden – at the end of January –
just before we left for our month in Florida –
We cleaned up and removed all plants!
It served us from end of October to end of January.
Had we not left – it still would of been producing!
This one has a built in timer and grow lights at the top.
Since it is in the garage and space is limited
No cucumbers or tomato’s!
We eat greens everyday !
We have started our seedlings – which will take three or four weeks
under grow lights from the Tower Garden in the garage,
We have started various plantings –
38 plants total to start.
We have room for 56 plants!
But – even selecting everyday from these Towers
We can not eat it all!
We give some to family and some to neighbors!
Our neighbor next door has one – and she can not eat it all!
One – if planted properly –
can feed a family produce so that they buy very little from the store!
If any at all!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
I will take pictures and update as we go along.
March is a funny month!
70 one day and maybe snow the next day!
