I wanted to "feed" my compost pile, made mozzarella, dumped the whey in the pile, hopefully now it's balanced and i can set it and forget it again.

Ended up getting, Amazing Creation Stackable Planter Vertical Garden There are a few brands in this size range, this one came w/ a chain that i hang from my Pergola, gonna incorporate the 1in or so pvc pipe in the middle to add worms (i'll figure on the size once i get my hands on it). I have a bait shop a few miles away, they said they have red wigglers, so i'll nab a few from them.

I've been stock piling a few kitchen scraps and eggshells and coffee grinds.

For the potting mix i'll use a mixture of the compost i've been making, peet moss and vermiculite.

I have no idea what i'll plant, maybe i'll just dump a bunch of choy sum(chinese veggie) seeds in there and see if anything sprouts.

How do you know if American worms will like Chinese food?

Turns out the bait shops in my area don't have red wigglers, i had to get clarification that they were not nitecrawlers, i'll call the nurseys tomorrow, if not i'll amazon em.

Check gas stations. Most gas stations in Indiana have worms from Walt’s Crawlers company, maybe you have something similar.

I said in /pol that i just dropped some choy sum(chinese veg) on friday, just to see, at first i was trying to plant three seeds per pot, but the seeds are the size of a fucking period. So i just started sprinkling it like salt, now i see that shit is sprouting and i didn't do shit besides just topping off the tube and pouring a quart of water every few days. (directly in the tube theres too many pots to water individually)

Not a house plant, but have a muscadine planted on a trellis at the end of the house. I guess I'm about to go into the jelly making business for a few. Got bumper crop this year. I got (3) 5 gallon buckets of muscadines off it yesterday.

Ok I'm tired. 29 jars of muscadine jelly made this morning. Good to go for a while now.

So a friend of mine asked me to put a question to you guys and this seems like the best spot for it. He started growing some herbs this summer (parsley, sage, chives and such) and will be bringing them in for the winter. He was looking at grow lights and has pretty much no clue what to get. I was hoping you guys might have some suggestions.

Lanx Lanx how did your tower end up doing this year? Did you get any pics past the starting point?
the choy sum grew but no so edible, i also bought a wider baseplate for it so it could hold more water, i pump that drain water into jug to pour on my lawn, i guess it's just a place for the worms to hang out.

I have one of these - Miracle Gro Aerogarden. It's normally used starting with seeds but you could just put the pots on the stand. The light can be adjusted to be much higher than shown and can be programmed to turn on and off automatically at any times you wish. There are probably much more inexpensive ways if he's a do-it-your-selfer, but this is an easy way.
