Good Bug, Bad Bug?

We’ve all done it at some point.  We’ve seen a bug on our beloved Tower Garden and freaked out!  However, not all bugs are created equal and there are many beneficial bugs out there that actually eat the bad guys.  It’s that whole circle of life thing.  I’ve mistakenly squashed a ladybug larvae before.  They look nothing like the aphid eating adult they turn into.  In fact they look kind of weird!  You can see all of the life stages of ladybug’s here so that you won’t make the same mistake I did!

How to Hand Pollinate Tomatoes, Zucchini and more!

Do your Zucchini, Tomato and other fruit bearing crops produce plenty of flowers but no little or no fruit?  The problem could be a lack of pollination.  Due to a decline in the Bee population, more gardeners are having to manually pollinate their fruiting crops to ensure a bountiful, continuous harvest! Learn how to hand pollinate!

 

What crops need to be pollinated?
Any crop that produces a fruit needs to be pollinated.  Some common crops are tomatoes, zucchini (and all varieties of squash), cucumbers, beans, peas, peppers, strawberries, melons and eggplant.

Stephen Ritz is coming to Orlando

Long-time educator and founder of THE Green Bronx Machine is coming to Orlando! Stephen Ritz and his students observed that as waistlines expanded, engagement and opportunities in school decreased, school performance suffered, and hope and ambition became minimized. Originally an after-school, alternative program for high school students, Green Bronx Machine has evolved into K-12+ model fully integrated into core curriculum. Our students grow, eat and love their vegetables en route to spectacular academic performance. 30,000 pounds of Bronx vegetables later, our favorite crops include healthy students, high performing schools, graduates, registered voters, living wage jobs and members of the middle class. Our work, vision and mission are as organic and locally grown as it gets – straight from our classroom to our community.

NOW SHIPPING to North Carolina!

In the past, if you lived in North Carolina, you were unable to order seedlings from Living Towers.  Due to some restrictions their Department of Agriculture had in place on living plants coming into the state.  We found out today that we are now able to ship all seedlings (not just herbs) to North Carolina!
