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
