New Garden Tower Contest

My “Garden Tower Project” friends recently dropped me an email to let me know about a very cool contest they’ve got going at the moment.

Unlike me, these guys REALLY know how to do a contest! Apart from offering a Garden Tower as a grand prize, they’ve got more than $1000 worth of other stuff to give away.

They were even nice enough to make me look good by adding the RWC site to the contest page (they are purchasing a pound of worms for one lucky contestant)!
😆

Entering the contest is as easy as filling out a simple form!

IMPORTANT: This is for U.S. citizens only – and the deadline is July 22nd, 2013! Visit the contest page via the link below.

    Love the concept of the tower but the cost is too high. Going vertical utilize space. Actually it is the same thing you are doing Bentley with your windrows, plants and vegetable, but now it is in a vertical plane/space. Thanks for the heads up. I entered the contest.

  1. If you are a little handy with tools, you can make one of these badboys! Looks like a good test for my heatgun during winter. But I do own about 5 torches 🙂

  2. Forgot to mention. A master gardener showed me this trick planting potatoes about 3 years ago. But he used to cut the bottom out of the barrel. Wiggle the drum in an upwards manner and the potatoes roll out. 🙂

    Thanks for the link for making a garden tower, I’ve saved that as a possible future project. I’m not in the U.S. so I don’t have the option of getting the ones mentioned above.

    About the potatoes, I just had a quick glance at the video since I’m at work and there’s no sound on this computer, but another way my father has told me about is using old car tyres, and just keep stacking them higher as the plant grows. I think that’s similar to what they’re doing there.
    I have no idea if there’s a risk of toxins leaching from the tyres though.

    Once of these days I’m going to try the big black trash bag style of growing potatoes. If I get the really thick ones I think it might work, and the bag will absorb heat as well, making it grow like crazy hopefully!!!

    …would be nice to win this tower, though….much classier in the city than trash bags….

    Try the contractor bags from Home Depot. Really big, really thick plastic. logic says they’ll work with punctures for drainage.

    I entered the contest, too – – I’d love one of those towers!

    Lynn thanks for the tip! Yes, definitely need drainage holes, it would be a fun experiment.

    Also fun to figure out what to do with the other, mmmmm, 14? bags in the box! I stand 5’8′ high and they come almost up to my shoulders! 🙂

    I’m already planning what to plant in the tower. If I don’t win one, I think I might buy it, or check out less expensive alternates – it’s perfect for a teeny little New England city yard!

    A box has 14 bags??? Whoa, that’s a whole city garden!!! I’m an Amazon, too…that’s a huge bag! My mind is racing now….

    No, 14 + the 1 you’re going to plant in, LOL! Well, 15 is a guess. It’s not the standard 20 or 40 or whatever you buy for normal household use, but yeah, it’s a box of some number. When I first saw one, I couldn’t believe it. Look at it this way…no matter what you need to bag up, you’ll have something that will handle it without tearing.

    For composting/growing purposes, all you’d have to do is roll the top down to the desired height. Seems like, if anything, the rolled top would be support for the sides, kind of like those pools with the inflated ring around the top, right?

    That makes sense Lynn, although I was picturing poking holes like a strawberry tower except with potatoes and sealing up the top. So many ideas you’ve given me! Thank you!

    If I only had the space and sun exposure to try some of them….

    You’re welcome, and let me know if you try them!
