It’s still cold here in zone 5 where we live in New Hampshire. The garden’s raised beds are still mostly frozen with the exception of the bed that has our cold frames on it. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy our garden and start growing some heathy and delicious food. Here are my Six on Saturday.
The rock wool is used to hold the seed and vermiculite which are put into the Tower Garden HOME unit, our indoor aeroponic grower. It’s so easy and simple to grow your own greens and veggies with Tower Gardens!
We are growing a mixed blend of lettuce and basil – both varieties came in the heirloom seed kits that are shipped with the Tower Garden unit.
I had started some peas about a week ago which had germinated, so I put half of them in the Tower Garden and the other half in the garden underneath the cold frame. Under the cold frames the soil is warm and you can dig your fingers down below 2 inches. What a difference the cold frames make!
Along with the pea shoots I also brought out some lettuce I had started in the Tower Garden that I thought would be good to have it finish it’s growth in the cold frame. It grows so fast in the Tower Garden I needed to take the smaller ones so I could free up some space in the Tower Garden to start more seeds!
