Have you seen my new hydroponic smoothie tower?

welcome to my new obsession.....

I've always wanted a hydroponic gardening set up to help me grow my own food indoors, no matter what the weather is like. I knew I found my set up when I discovered the Lettuce Grow Farmstand: made from ocean bound plastic, super easy to install and has a small floor footprint and is allllll about growing vertically! I'm in LOVE!
