I’m so excited to show you how we finally did our Indoor Vertical Aeroponic garden setup in our new home. If you missed it, check out our new 1700s Farmhouse we just bought blog post next!
So, I’ve had this amazing Vertical Aeroponic garden for months now, I didn’t plant it though, because we planned to move. After we moved, there was lots to do, as seen in this blog post welcome tour. So, I’m just now getting around to planting my first grow inside this our new Home Garden Tower System! And I am so excited to show you!
What Is Vertical Aeroponics?
Imagine being able to grow your own food, anywhere you’d like, year round, for half the cost and space of a traditional garden. Doesn’t that sound too good to be true? That is exactly what vertical aeroponics allows the gardener to do.
Aeroponics is the process of growing plants without soil, using only water and nutrients. Basically, it’s an upgraded evolution of existing hydroponic systems that periodically shower exposed roots. This provides the plants fresh oxygen, water, and nutrients exactly when they’re needed, using 2% of the water and 10% of the space of a traditional garden. Here’s an example below of a layout and the food you can grow in the tower garden.
Why We bought Our Tower Garden
So yes, as you can Imagine, it is a significant investment to purchase one of these, and I think it’s totally worth weighing the benefits versus the cost for your family before purchasing one. There are three different types of Tower Garden Units you can purchase, and each can be financed via monthly direct withdraws from a bank account. I think that is what got me to pull the plug and do it actually, knowing it wasn’t an up front cost, and no matter what happened in the world and the supply chain that my family would have fresh food from garden to table year round.
Setting up the Tower Garden
I really thought setting up the tower garden was going to be much harder than it was. In fact, I have had my garden since the first of April, granted we knew that we were moving so waited to plant it till we did, but I still put it off for about a month after we moved. That’s likely my only regret so far!
