About: During the coronavirus lockdown we became really interested in growing our own food and decided to invest in a tower garden – only ever had a small herb garden previously. Setup was pretty straight forward and the kids were able to get involved too.
I don’t believe we’ve ever tried truly fresh lettuce until last week – it’s honestly the best tasting salad we’ve ever had. The adults in the house are vegan/vegetarian so for us this has been a game changer and I think we need to expand our setup! Currently we have growing lettuce varieties, beetroot, and pak choy, in one and a half of the towers and the other one and a half towers have just been planted with more lettuce seeds for continual supply. Up the top of two of the towers we are trialling some small cherry tomatoes, sweet valentine and tommy toe grown from seed. Everything is thriving – we’ve even underplanted to capture some of the ‘run off’ and those plants are loving it too.
Wish we had of done this sooner!
