Learn the how’s, what’s and why’s of a Tower Garden, the easiest garden on earth, at our May Tower Garden Workshops. Be sure to register early and reserve your seat to avoid disappointment. All workshops take place at Living Towers in Eustis Florida, unless otherwise stated.
The Tower Garden website has always looked very swish, but it’s had a face lift and now looks even better! It’s got a sleek, clean fresh feel about it, but best of all, it’s mobile friendly! I mean, who doesn’t have some kind of mobile device nowadays?
We exhibit the Towers at many many events all year long. We often see the same people at each of these events (I rarely forget a face) and a response I get from some of these familiar faces is “we’ve been looking into these for some time”.
So that got me thinking. How long (or how quickly) does it take one to decide that they are going to purchase a Tower Garden?
Spring is finally here, well almost. In fact, we reached the mid 80s last week here in Eustis Florida. I’m truly ready for winter to be over. Bring on the shorts, sunscreen and sunglasses! We’ve been growing year round here and I didn’t cover my personal towers once over the winter, despite waking up at least half a dozen times to a thick frost on the ground. That’s the beauty of the Tower Garden. It grows no matter what I do (or don’t do).
You know what it’s like. You setup your Tower Garden, you file your Growing Guide in that super safe place. You know the one. The one that is so safe it won’t be found again until you move house. You can always download the current Growing Guide from the Tower Garden website but there are a lot of pages and you don’t want it to get wet!
You received your Tower Garden, you started some seeds and you sit back and wait. After 1-2 weeks you go ahead and put them in your Tower Garden, the next day they look like this!
We just returned from our national Tower Garden and Juice Plus conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The leaves are starting to change and I needed to wear a long sleeve jacket a few evenings. I heard they even had snow in Ohio! This is great news for us Floridians and the snow birds, but it’s not so great for the millions and millions of northerner gardeners. Or is it…? What if you could grow your Tower Garden inside? Hmmm…
Who doesn’t love Kale? Well ok, it’s not everyone’s favorite but it sure is a powerhouse when it comes to nutrition. steamed kale has been shown to lower cholesterol levels. Regular consumption has been linked to reducing at least five types of cancer, including: bladder, breast, colon, ovary and prostate. It’s powerful compounds known as glucosinolates have even been found to regulate detoxification at the genetic level. And that’s not to mention its superfood status when it comes to other nutrients like vitamin K, A, calcium and a group of compounds known as flavonoids, of which kale has more than just about any other vegetable.
Twenty clients agreed to try the product and Hubbard went to work testing their urine samples. High levels of the heavy metal thallium kept showing up. According to Oppenheimer, around the same time, Hubbard found a study that found cruciferous vegetables are excellent accumulators of heavy metals, including thallium. Cruciferous vegetables include: kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, collard and mustard greens. While considering kale’s explosion in popularity, Hubbard reportedly made the link between kale and possible thallium toxicity.
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!
