Tower Garden Growing

The first time I saw a Tower Garden it was love at first sight. I was at a health seminar given by Dr. David Katz and behind him was a Tower filled with a bounty of fresh produce. It almost didn’t seem real, the food looked that good. After finding out more about it and the convenience of growing fruits, vegetables and plants on a Tower Garden, I knew I had to have one.

The truth is I’ve wanted to grow my own food in a garden for years. Sure, I grow herbs each summer in pots and even tried out some small tomatoes (a lucky animal ate them before I even got to pick any), but I have been limited with how much I can grow due to space. The only area I have at my house to plant a garden with optimal sunlight is smack in the middle of my back yard where my kids play (good luck with any plants growing between various balls landing on them!) or on my front lawn. I also travel frequently in the summer and didn’t want to have to bother my neighbors with the responsibility of watering my plants (a benefit of the Tower Garde is that water gets circulated continuously on a timer).

What is a Tower Garden?

Tower Garden uses an aeroponic growing system (without soil, the roots are exposed to nutrients and water). If you’ve ever rode on The Land ride at Epcot, you know what I’m talking about. It’s perfect for rooftops, patios, balconies-any sunny place outside. Best of all, there’s no weeding, kneeling, watering or getting dirty.

Putting my tower together was a family affair with my kids joining in. After seeing pictures and an actual Tower before, my boys couldn’t wait to put it up (and watch it grow!). I was amazed at how easy and quick it was to assemble. My standard tower holds spots for 20 plants. Here’s a list of what we planted using seedlings:

  • Herbs (basil, cilantro, rosemary, oregano and mint)
  • Greens (kale, arugula, butter lettuce)
  • Tomatoes
  • Squash
  • Strawberries
  • Peppers
  • Cucumbers

In a short time I’ve been able to use my herbs and some lettuces which is very convenient for cooking fresh and developing new recipes. Are you growing with a Tower? If so, please comment below, I would love to hear your experiences.
