I love fall here in the Midwest but usually I am a little sad ----because it would be time to take down the veggie garden. Well, not any more! This year I'll be growing my tower garden indoors...right here at home! Will start from seeds just as I did all summer. Can't wait! Stay tuned for photos and updates!

Having so much fun with our Tower Garden. It's September and still warm now...but thinking ahead to frigid, deep freezes in the not too distant future. So happy to know I can keep growing all year round by setting my Tower Garden indoors with grow lights! So cheerful to grow indoors. :)
How to grow a small garden for weight loss
We survived our move from our home of 16 years! Sadly, I left my wonderful square foot garden behind for the new owners. So happy to report I am growing again with aeroponics due to the space restrictions at our new home. Check out my growing tower photos at www.greengourmetgardener.com. C'mon, let's get growing! ;)

It's official. Spring is here. We've managed to survive the 4th coldest winter in our area's history! Wakened to a light snow this morning, but all melted by the afternoon. Let the garden prep begin! So wonderful that Square Foot Gardening requires very little prep! Just clear your planter boxes from any leftover winter debris ...lightly "fluff" up the special planting mix, place your grids and plant! Hooray! :)

We have been surviving our hottest stretch of weather--- many 90+ degree days...so important to water the vegetable garden...a drip system would be great! :)
We were blessed with a good soaking rain last night...perfect morning to "tidy up" several of the planting squares...really just takes a minute or two per square...very few weeds and the few present slipped right out of the planting medium. Only tools needed were a large kitchen spoon to "fluff up" the planting mix and a sharp knife to harvest. No digging, no shovel, no rake...just a big spoon :) How is your garden growing?
