Graden Tower Project 2
New Gardening Experiment
This is great for lazy gardeners like me!
Aday of cleaning the garden plots and I'm pooped out. I hobbled into the yellowing porchlight & plopped down, registering my gripes into a short tumbler of amber.
Then I scribbled gardening onto the mental list I keep in my head.
You know the list I'm talking about; that list of things that you are becoming too “grown-up” to do anymore.
I call my list “The Raven.”
The Navy gifted me a pair of new knuckles as a “go-away” present. But I soon discovered that bionic knees are superb for walking, not so hot for kneeling. The metal on the inside digs into the meat from the backside.
Padded garden kneelers and knee pads help...some. But by the warm glow of my Porchlight, I concede that working garden beds will soon be a thing of the past. Just another crossed checkbox in the Raven .
But creaky knees doesn’t mean I’m out of the gardening game completely.
I've been aware of the Garden Tower Project, a 6-tiered vertical planter that rotates on it’s base, since it's Kickstarter Project. Since then I’ve checked in on their progress from time to time.
I’m pretty sure I can coax a summer’s worth of salad and greens from this set-up for two or three adults.
I’ll report back from time to time.
