WindowFarm

If you visit Meowzas from May-October you know we like to garden – alot.  The blog basically turns into a green bushy land of vegetables and happiness.  What happens in the months though we can’t rooftop garden? Well we garden inside!  For Christmas I got Matthew a WindowFarm.  What is a WindowFarm? A Windowfarm is a vertical hydroponic farming system for year-round indoor growing inside.  You still have to nurture it with light (windows or artificial light like we are doing), water and love.   We grew some seedlings and they have started growing, right now it’s just a learning experience (isn’t gardening always?) as we’ve never done hydroponic farming before, so we are testing broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, beans, baby peppers, strawberries and basil.  All the seedlings have come up except for the peppers but they’re on their way.  Once they start growing, we might get a additional light and we’ll eventually have to trellis them up.  Imagine walking inside your apartment and above the cat bowls and next to the front door you have a fresh smelling green garden?  It’s quite beautiful.  Can’t wait to see what it’s like in the next few months.  <3

This is when it was installed the day after Christmas.
