Urban Garden Grows

We are looking forward to seeing what our spring gardening yields this year. After the strawberry issue, and a very unusual winter, we returned to the growing on the tower. I added fresh chives to my breakfast this morning. I love being able to forage from my tower. An added benefit of  my tower is that sitting outside to eat my morning breakfast allows to me to enjoy the water sounds from the fountain that recycles the water in the tower, showering the plants in intervals.

My rose bush has buds all over it, and the mint is making a comeback as it always does. I always feel at home when I have fresh mint growing in my garden.

There’s never been an easier way to garden on a concrete balcony. This vertical, hydroponic Towergarden uses just 10% of the amount of water needed for a regular garden bed with the same amount of plants (20). It’s our zen fountain, that runs on a timer, bringing us the soothing sounds of running water. It is also the extension of our kitchen; all the food says fresh until read to harvest and eat. We have sugar snap peas, watermelon, celery, tomatoes (red-ribbed, yellow pear heirlooms and cherry tomato), basil, bok choy, romaine lettuce, and more.
