Papa’s World – geraniums – potato’s – Tower Gardens

It has been just a little over one month –

since we replanted the Geraniums-

that are now 4 or 5 years old !

For the first time – we have planted Potato’s !

Today – Sunday – 6-2-19

We also have for the second year –

a flower called –

THE EVENING PRIMROSE !

What is unique about that –

is it ONLY BLOOMS AT NIGHT !

EVENING PRIMROSE

The Tower Gardens are now in production for almost 5 weeks.

We have been eating lettuce since the end of week two.

Tower Garden number ONE
Tower Garden Number TWO

It will not be long as we have flowers for Tomato’s – Squash and Cucumbers

And Egg plant – herbs – other greens.

A first for us – Potato’s!

We have a total of 8 Potato plants –

this is the first time we have ever planted them !

Just saying !

We never had Green Thumbs

until we bought our first Tower Garden eight years ago !

And – really – it is so easy –

just make sure it has WATER & NUTRIENTS!

A very wise thought !

Now – I have learned – these are her babies –

she is known as the –

TOWER GARDEN QUEEN !

She has quite the following !

And – you can tell by the results –

I in turn – make sure they have WATER –

They have NUTRIENTS and the vines have a place to climb !

Geraniums – over five years old.
Geraniums over five years old.
Geraniums over five years old

Our Geraniums – I pull up in the Fall –

shake the dirt off –

Stick them right side up in a five gallon pail –

and hang them from ceiling in our unheated garage !

In the Spring – we pull them out –

clean the dead leaves off –

And pot them – water them and just watch them come back.

A good thought

I am in charge of the lawn outside – that is my time to just relax –

I rather like mowing – making it look nice and neat !

My side yard

We had a irrigation system put in two years ago –

and finally – this year –

It has recovered and grown in nice and green !

I have a lawn service and have lime spread in the Fall.

Tomato Plant

All in all – growing vegetables – seeing the colors of our flowers –

Is a form of stress relief for me.

The two Tower Gardens – all the Geraniums and Potato Plants

If you have any questions on the growing system

or bringing back the Geraniums from year to year –

Feel free to ask.

I hope you enjoyed my little blog –

Come back anytime to PAPA’S WORLD !

Healthy Life – Fresh Food

Seven years ago – we were introduced to ” GROWING ” our own FRESH produce.

Neither one of us ( Sherry) my wife – were gardeners – and the thought of weeding was completely out of my vocabulary !

Then we ordered our first ” TOWER ” Garden –

A aeroponic garden system – using Air – Water and Minerals.

We grow some of our seedlings – others we order and have them shipped to us.

Healthy eating – knowing we use no pesticides – and fresh produce –

allows us to eat healthy all year round !
( We also grow in our garage using grow lights during Winter. )

The system is really quite simple – a tank in the bottom – holds 20 gallons of water.

A pump – is attached to the center of the Tower by a hose –

and pumps water straight up to the top and then drips down through holes in the center of the Tower.

The water also contains minerals from the Earth. Patented – and in liquid form.

Which are supplied when you order for one season. Everything you need is supplied – for your original garden season – this system we have is seven years old and looks as good today as when we bought it !

There is a timer for the pump – 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off. The whole process boils down to making sure you have water – and once a week add some tonic – or in the heat of Summer – every other week.

The fresh produce grows at a very fast rate – in four weeks time we are eating lettuce – Kale – leafy greens . Cuke’s and tomato’s & peppers take longer – but much shorter than a normal garden plot. You can grow most anything that does not require a tree. Mellon’s – Strawberries – squash – egg plant – herbs etc.

Simple – fast – and best of all ” I DO NOT HAVE TO WEED ” ! I HATE TO WEED !

Since we were some of the first in the Country as a test – we decided to purchase two more ! We have one set up for Winter in our garage and two outside as you see here – the produce is only a couple weeks old – the smaller ones about a week !

We also are distributor’s for what is called the Tower Garden – and have placed them in schools as part of a curriculum established by the Juice Plus Company – to teach children how to grow their own fresh produce all across the Country – presently 5,500 Towers are teaching the process nationwide. We are responsible for about 70 – our team is very active.

Promoting health – one green at a time – and some reds!!!! LOL

Have a great day – eat healthy.
