Vertical farming is cultivating plant or animal life within a skyscraper greenhouse or on vertically inclined surfaces. The modern idea of vertical farming uses techniques similar to glass houses, where natural sunlight can be augmented with artificial lighting.

  1. I especially love the vertical vegetable growing videos as they give you more space to grow veggies even if you have a small property and the bottle gardens are an amazing way to recycle rubbish to get something amazing🙂

    • me too, am thinking of bottle towers for my porch this year, save on pots😉

      • I have found some amazing resources online for growing bottle gardens and they look amazing when situated in windows🙂

      • i still have yet to construct mini green house in kitchen here with all the cold weather repairs, now have a major leak again behind my shower😦 but still have hopes before seedling time to get this done

      • Don’t you HATE leaks in your shower? Steve is going to have to fix one at our daughters home in the city. We don’t have water freezing in our pipes though so we should count ourselves lucky there🙂

      • well i didn’t know about all the plumbing issues until this extreme winter and my oven and dryer are out of commission which helped keep the wall with pipes warm in past … even though is pain in ass i found a big fat waste of money and heat with the lack of insulation in between kitchen and bathroom wall, so take it as blessing in disguise eh

      • Yup…best look at it in a positive light or you might hide under the bed and not come out!😉 We have quolls (native equivalent of a large spotty cat) munching their way through our hen population and as most of our chickens are clucky and in nests outside the coop at the moment the results have been devastating. We have 2 populations of tiny chicks with no mum as she was ripped apart (along with several of the chicks) and it is hot, dry and I am SOOO over summer😦. I guess we just need to find good things to look at as otherwise I will be joining you under the bed hiding till it turns good again😉

      • aww poor babies, nature can be so cruel … balance eh😦

        good luck to you ! will be starting my plumbing adventures tomorrow morning with warmer weather if the planets agree😀

      • Can you send a bit of your cold wet weather over here please? That will save me having to put on a felt hat and crank up the Native American music on the gramophone…😉

      • lol, would love too these stupid weather people keep promising warm ups that seem to never happen. what an easy job, always wrong and never get fired lol

        March 3, 2014 at 6:27 pm

      • It is 4.12am and it is raining!!! Really raining! I KNEW leaving a full load of dry washing on the line would be too much for nature to resist!!!😉

        March 4, 2014 at 5:12 pm

      • lol, good idea😀

        March 4, 2014 at 5:30 pm

  2. That really works…Works for me anyway..
    I do use the technique on ” grow in the gutter ” for about an year or more…
    Have 2 full 7-Meters gutters, and planted all kinds , of-course, my favourites, autumn strawberries….That if I pick them early in the morning, before the bloody black birds do …😀

    I love the looks of vertical garden, I have read few tutorials on how to get started with them (How to Start a Vertical Gardenamong all), but the videos are bit better than plain articles. I think a vertical garden is a perfect solution for our very little back yard. This way the space would be at least tripled. Love the idea of growing vegetables like that. Definitely a must-try for me! Thanks for the tips&ideas!
