This is a Tower Garden. The first time I saw one was a couple years ago at a friend's house. Then a friend got one. She sells them now. I became a distributor too, just to save money. Anyone can. When I first heard about them they were $1200. Now they are $500 and that includes every single thing you need for your Tower Garden including the seeds! In just days -- seriously less than a week -- I had the seedlings in the tower. You are seeing the bright green seedlings with little miniature signs I made to remind me what was growing, in case anything didn't sprout.
I went to OSH and got extra different seeds in addition to what was provided. Gourmet lettuces, tomatoes and herbs. Everything is now - almost 4 weeks in burgeoning except the nasturtium. Tomato plants are getting ginormous but no tomatoes yet. But the plants are brilliantly healthy.
This was a shot I took several days ago when I went out to harvest my LUNCH! Oh my God it was so delicious. Last night I had people over and they loved it too, so I'm not biased!
And the super cool amazing thing about these Tower Gardens is they use a tiny percent of the resources used to grow these crops in the ground, and the nutrients are higher!
So many things about this are fun, especially since I eat one or two salads a day and have spinach and kale in my smoothie every morning, but man oh man is it LAZY and also just so incredibly satisfying to grow stuff -- any stuff -- but stuff you can eat every day -- WOW1
Can't more highly recommend to any Lazy Women out there!
