My Tower Garden is 3 months old!  I can't believe it has only been 3 months and I have been harvesting LOTS of goodies from this amazing tower!!!  

I have really enjoyed having lettuces on the Tower Garden.  I have been just harvesting leaves for salads and sandwiches the moment I need it.  I JUST recently harvested the remainder of the heads of lettuce I had in order to plant some new seedlings.  I am ready for that to get going ASAP!  The lettuces are probably my favorite.  

I have also been harvesting a TON of swiss chard.  LOTS!  Check out how big and beautiful these leaves are:

Swiss Chard from my Tower Garden

I have been adding it to my freezer smoothie packs and I am getting quite a stock pile.  My kale is growing slower than the chard, but I am excited to get that into smoothie bags, too.  I recently harvested ALL of my spinach to throw in my smoothie bags too.  I have a smoothie EVERY morning, so this Tower Garden is doing a good job with keeping me in the smoothie eating business!  If only it would grow frozen blueberries….

As you may have noticed in the picture, I have a GIANT tomato plant.  It is taller than I am.  It has produced fruit, but it is taking a LONG time to ripen.  I am certain it is because of the cold weather.  I have tons of flowers and a bit of fruit, but nothing is happening.  I also have a jalapeño, and it hasn't flowered at all.  Again, I am thinking it is just too cold.  

One major issue I am dealing with right now is Aphids.  Ugh.  Unfortunately it is way too cold for Ladybugs, so I am left trying to keep them at bay with my soap spray that I made!  To an empty spray bottle, I added a tablespoon of Castile Soap and an 1/8 of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper.  I will say, when you spray this, make sure you are upwind, otherwise you will feel like you have just been sprayed with pepper spray!  I want to add Neem Oil to the mix, I just need to order some!!!  If you have a Tower Garden, how do you keep Aphids at bay?  Right now I am spraying morning and night.  I can't wait until Ladybug season!  

Do you have a Tower Garden?  If so, what are you growing?  Please share any tips and tricks you have!

  1. Do you keep yours inside or outside? Wondering if this will work indoors by a window, and if bugs would still be a problem?
