My husband and I are excited to start our window farm! We’re starting small with the central pane of our three-pane bedroom window. We have to keep it all pretty high up since we have a toddler, so we can’t have anything at a height that he can reach and destroy.
One thing we’ve already noticed is that while we are going to be doing a “C” style window farm, our window sill is just not wide enough underneath to hook the bottom reservoir, and our air conditioner is also in the way. So we’re going to set the bottom reservoir on top of the sill. This will take away a little bit of window space, but it’s a tall window so we think we’ll still be OK.
Today we made our initial foray to Lowe’s to see what supplies we could get there and how much they would all cost, as well as get an idea of what kinds of things we want to grow. In February our son is going to stay with his grandparents in Miami for a week so that’s when we’ll do our shopping and start our garden!
