Our Future Gardens?

Category: Village Square | Posted: Thu Oct 09, 2008 5:35 pm

Charlie became interested in a new type of gardening when I asked him to make me some soda bottle pots. He researched for hours as usual and came up with self-contained planting boxes.
We have Pac Choy, Broccoli, Collards, Lettuce planted. This has been a fun experiment.

How interesting! Is it as easy to care for as it looks like?

Constructing it is the most work. There are many blogs about various types, some simple and some complicated. Once the container is filled with water and growing medium, one waters through the watering pipe. It's water-saving, and the plants grow fast! We're trying tomato plants, cukes, melons and tons of other stuff next season. Of course I'll never give up digging in the dirt.

That looks like fun, GG...How long do you reckon it will be before you are munching?

I think I'll be cutting the Pac Choy this weekend, before we go away. This is all experimental, so I really just have to wait and see. I will keep you up on it. I'll also implement the row covers you suggested in case of an early frost. It is fun to try something new and do it with someone you love.
