Fresh lettuce growing on our Tower Garden last winter.
Our Tower Garden is full of fresh produce ready to harvest! We will be harvesting and replanting our second crop for this growing season. Linda and I have been eating from our Tower Gardens for several months now. Going out daily and picking fresh greens to make our morning Green Shake or for fresh salads. We have kale , collard, and chard and a variety of lettuce plants that we have been eating from since December! It is now the last week of June and the heat is beginning to make the lettuce and chard bolt and the collard leaves too tough. So it’s time to replace them with new starts. Seven months of eating from each plant. That’s remarkable!
Lettuce is one our staple veggetables. We eat one or two salads daily. Our Tower Gardens keep us supplied with the lettuce we need year round. This short video shows you how to harvest your lettuce.

Here are some tips on how you can keep your Tower Garden cool in the summer heat.
Raise your Tower Garden off the ground.

By lifting your Tower Garden off the ground you reduce the transfer of heat from the ground, or any other surface, into the reservoir. The Tower Garden Dolly not only raises the reservoir off the ground, but also allows you to easily move it.
Add frozen water bottles to the water reservoir.
Any temperature of 85 degrees or above will put your Tower Garden’s plants into distress. When experiencing high temperatures you can lower water temperature by adding frozen water bottles or a bag of ice to the water reservoir. Frozen water bottles are reusable. They can be put back in the freezer and refroze for use again. Plants do best when the water temperature is keep between 65 and 70 degrees.
Protect your plants from midday heat stress.

Move your Tower Garden into the shade or cover your plants when it is hot. During periods of extreme heat, plants are being stressed when temperatures are above 85 degrees. The plants will literally begin to cook! They need more water as they deal with the loss of water by evaporation through their leaves. If you are not able to move your Tower Garden into the shade than cover it. Use a row cover cloth that you can purchase from a garden supply store or the Tower Garden Weather Protection Blanket.
