My vertical window garden has moved to the active planning stage. Last weekend my daughter and I started seeds. They are looking wonderful.
Today we went to Home Depot and hashed out ideas for my plans. The concept is 3 towers, using a 20 gallon fish tank as the water reservoir. We hashed out how to seat the PVC tubing towers in the tank, and how to anchor the towers to the ceiling. My southern facing glass door panel is about 6 feet tall. The fish tank is less than 6 feet tall, allowing for 4 feet of vertical growing space in the window. I’ll be using a fountain pump and drip tubing to disperse the water to each column. Each column will have 3 or 4 1.5 liter Poland Spring bottles duct taped to the PVC, where each bottle will drip into the bottle below it. Next week I hope to construct the system. All systems go, and we’re so excited.
