About: I have MS and gardening (even in raised beds) has been too much for me for a couple of years, but the price of greens at the supermarket started to go up and I wanted to reduce waste.

My two Mr Stacky solar hydroponic gardens have been amazing! I just put seeds in and things have grown into lush green and delicious plants. I harvest by snapping off leaves and letting the plant continue to grow, The height has allowed delicate things like butter lettuce survive frosts (and keeping them close to the house has kept the kangaroos and wallabies away from wanting a nibble.

I only put the seeds in in March so haven’t had a full year of seasonal produce (I am putting strawberries in this week) but have harvested bok choy, silver beet, various lettuces, unknown purple leafy veges from a seed packet called “stir fry mix”. Broccoli is going well but not headed yet.

Garlic chives decided that this was not for them and have steadfastly refused to grow more than an a couple of centimetres before curling up and expiring – I suspect they will do much better in summer.

I highly recommend the setups for people on the NDIS who have gardens in their goals, as they are very easy to use when you have a disability/chronic illness.
