I’m so glad to be writing this blog series with my sister Cody Catherine! Already, you’ll see we approach our gardening differently even though we’ll both be using GreenStalks!
I think she’ll have far less mistakes than me since she has been closely working with GreenStalk since the very beginning. Thankfully, our dad created GreenStalk so we can always ask him but sometimes, I don’t even know where to begin or what I should be asking… so you may be reading some very funny and embarrassing goofs of mine! Hopefully, it’ll be worth my embarrassment in the hope that you won’t repeat my mistakes.
I’ve started some seeds already, but most of my planting will be directly from seed into my GreenStalks. I’ll be using 4 four-tier GreenStalks in Stunning Stone, though Maple may win me over.
Here’s what I’ve started in seed indoors or directly into my GreenStalks:
This is solely to be a money saver – my family eats oodles of green beans!
I’ll have some varieties in my GS on my sunny back porch and my shaded front porch.
I’m Swedish and love lingonberry jam! I’ll also be growing this in-ground so I’ll be able to show you the differences with the GreenStalk v. in-ground.
I’ll have these in GreenStalk tiers. We had some extra and I wanted to make them useful. They will not have the water feature, they’re essentially to be used like large pots. But for some who have a tier at home that they aren’t using, you’ll understand!
Like my sweet potatoes, I’ll be growing these in my extra GreenStalk tiers.
I’ll also be growing lots of herbs… As you may have read, Cody Catherine planted some extra seedlings so I’ll happily accept them! I’ll probably add a few others because I’ll probably get plant happy!
