I started indoor gardening for the fun and enjoyment of being able to garden, however as the plant collection grew I had to be more discerning about what I grew. I decided to grow things that were deemed ‘useful’. I still have some things that I like growing just because, but for the most part I limit my plant adventures to useful plants, things like herbs, medicinal plants, and edibles. My view of the amount and type of edible produce I could produce purely indoors was drastically changed one weekend when I was introduced to the Tower Garden at a local farmers market. As the lady was explaining everything and showing how it worked I knew that this was something that could be garden-changing for me. I’ve had a Tower Garden for 10 months now and I have not been disappointed, it has been garden-changing!
This blog is dedicated to documenting the trials and tribulations of having a completely indoor garden in a loft in the city. There are many articles, videos, and sites with ideas for cute little indoor gardens or ways for apartment dwellers to participate in the urban farming movement, but many of these ideas are not actually practical or sustainable over any period of time. This blog seeks to cut through the clutter of information, ideas, and products and figure out what is practical, what actually produces food, and other ways that an apartment dweller can participate in gardening and farming without any land at all. (Seriously we don’t even have a balcony) I hope you will join me on this journey and become an active participant in finding new ways that will allow us all to become just a little more sustainable.
