Good news/bad news about my flourishing Gardyn system is I’m now getting delusions of grandeur over how many of these I can have and going back to trying outdoor gardening again # mygardyn.com


 

Why I'm excited about products like Gardyn making gardening accessible and easy to brown thumbs, people that don't have garden space, people whose schedules don't allow proper garden maintenance, etc... # #

The Donner Party discovered this. ;)

 

First full day with my aeroponic garden by Gardyn. Stoked! # mygardyn.com

 
Mostly leafy greens, peppers, tomatoes, and herbs are what is in the starter kit. Will be curious how it could maybe branch out to other things like squashes, eggplant, etc.
 
please send updates as they grow :) it's an interesting approach!

 

I love the idea of growing my food but not the hassles I hit like weeding. I tried hydroponics before but this takes it to the next level and looks like can help do it with my erratic travel schedule and in real volume! Already pre-ordered! #gardening

$1,199 for the unit + a monthly subscription. Really the same thing can be done with $300 in lights and shelves plus a little basic knowledge of hydroponics. I just got off the phone with them.
 
@jasonvivier Yeah a DYI type person with knowledge could probably beat price point without feature parity probably. I'm not that person though. For me having something like this off the shelf with some of the design choices which will make has advantages over some things I've tried before like AeroGarden's stuff has me very excited about it.

You say you called them? Was that for a technical exchange or something else?
 
I was interested in purchasing one. The reality is that the AI component (their primary selling point) is wholly unnecessary. With these types of hydroponics systems as long as the nutrients are flowing your plants are fine.

Here is the same idea without AI. https://amzn.to/305ah5S

I will add that their systems is nice looking and now I kind of want to make one with some logic (using raspberry pi) and create a DIY kit for building a nice looking indoor garden with lighting. But who has the time?

Actually I'm hoping the automation aspect will make it possible t odo even with my distraction and procastination. Long term attention is what kills my previous gardening attempts. :)
 
@Hank G Then I'm even more interested to hear how it goes. :-)

 

Found a couple of these on my pepper plants. Anyone know what they are and if they are beneficial? # #

Yup, definitely looks like a ladybird/bug pupa. I can't tell the species because I'm in UK and we have different ones over here. But as Jodi says, they're all beneficial to your garden. And beautiful!
 
Thanks for the responses. The segmented shell threw me.

 

I saw a trailer for this documentary yesterday when I went to watch Apollo 11. It looks really neat. What's it really like for two suburbanites who never grew more than a tomato plant to start a biodynamic organic farm? Hint, it's not all puppy dogs and ice cream. It looks *really* fascinating to see how they and the farm evolved over the years. I guess that's the advantage of one of them being a documentary film maker in his former life. Can't wait until it plays locally. #gardening #agriculture #documentary #organic https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/la-et-mn-biggest-little-farm-documentary-20180901-story.html
