With every sunrise since last August – our Tower Garden has been out in the patio just chugging along!
We set it up then and started our seeds from scratch right in the rock wool and placed them in the pods.
And it has been producing PRODUCE ever since regularly!
Now in that timeframe, we have had HEAT – SUNSHINE, STORMS, HIGH WINDS, SNOW, and ICE!
We have covered it up with a metallic mesh to protect it from freezing
and the temps have gotten down into the mid to high teens!
One time overnight we had 1/4 inch of ICE all over everything!
And – it has survived ALL OF THAT!
Our sunny days in the summer can be HOT in the sun.
We ran the timer for the pump – 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off during that HOT TIME!
This was an early morning picture – around 8 am.
We rotated the plants and replanted them when the need arises.
In the early fall, we had tomatoes and cucumbers, and celery along with herbs and lettuce.
We are going to plant more variety this time – in fact as I write this –
We pulled all the plants out – took the Tower Garden apart – cleaned it up –
replanted those plants we pulled out and started new seeds including cukes-
and tomatoes and some others.
It took all of maybe an hour and a half to do that – cleaning – and putting new water and tonic in.

We have been growing I think for ten years and a neighbor just ordered one!
When they are ready we will go and help them get started –
EVERYTHING you need for the first year of growth is there!
