When I lived in my townhouse, all I had to garden was an L shaped corner. I use to have a mini palm tree and a couple of decorative plants. Back in 2014, I went on a month-long trip, when I came back it was all decorative plants was scorched by the hot Florida sun and weed had taken over the whole place.
This was when I decide to use my little space to grow food instead of decor. I started growing food and use my gardening for health instead of prettiness.
I had a patch of kale, a few peppers, and one tomato plant. One of the benefits of gardening is being able to grow and eat your own healthy food.
I had gotten a taste for homegrown food, I couldn’t go back to peasant grocery food LOL… I was a garden boogie by then.
That’s when I invest in my first vertical garden. It was the best piece of technology I ever owned. I was in love with that thing.
I had twenty holes to plant to my heart content! I grew lettuce, arugula, basil, even cucumbers. It was magnificent!
Unfortunately during the move last year, my tower garden baby got damage and I haven’t been able to use it. Which means I’m in the market for another one vertical garden.
Why do I need a vertical garden tower when I have almost two acres of gardening spaces you asked?
Well, Summers in Florida are not always conducive to gardening, it’s too hot and too wet. In the summer a vertical garden comes in handy… remember I’m garden boogie.
while this specific reason is completely vain and superficial there is another good reason…
Unfortunately, we are in a pandemic and food supply may get dicey. At the very least for my own peace of mind, I want me another one.
I found a new garden tower, I think I’m in love with.
This puppy hold fifty plants, act as a self fertilizer and composter. I love that feature because I have been trying to compost but all I manage to do was compiling stinky hot trash. I’m excited to be doing it the right way this time!
