Fresh Greens on the Go: Gardening in Your RV with Tower Gardens

Do you dream of fresh herbs and veggies, but are not sure how to make it happen while living in your RV? You’re not alone! Living the full-time RV life doesn’t mean giving up on your love of gardening. Enter the world of tower gardens, a space-saving, mobile solution for growing delicious food anywhere you roam.

Why Tower Gardens are Perfect for RVers:

  • Compact Footprint: Tower gardens take up minimal space, ideal for maximizing precious square footage in your RV.
  • Lightweight and Portable: Most tower gardens are designed to be easily disassembled and reassembled, making them perfect for packing up and moving on to the next adventure.
  • Self-Contained System: Forget messy soil! Tower gardens use aeroponics or hydroponics, which means plants grow in a nutrient-rich water solution, eliminating the need for traditional dirt.
  • High Yield: Don’t be fooled by their size. Tower gardens offer impressive yields because plants are stacked vertically, allowing you to grow a lot in a little space.

Choosing Your Tower Garden:

Several tower garden options are available, varying in size, features, and price. Consider these factors when making your choice:

  • Space: Measure your designated RV gardening spot to choose the appropriate tower size.
  • Plant Selection: Do you crave herbs, leafy greens, or even small fruiting plants? Different tower models cater to various plant needs.
  • Water Capacity: Think about how often you’ll be able to refill the water reservoir based on your travel schedule.

RV Gardening Tips with Tower Gardens:

  • Sunlight: Even with aeroponics or hydroponics, plants still need light! Position your tower garden in a sunny spot inside your RV or find a strategic outdoor location when parked.
  • Water Management: Monitor water levels regularly and adjust based on sunshine and plant needs.
  • Temperature Control: While our RV skirting is great for year round comfort, RV temperatures can fluctuate without it. Ensure your tower garden stays within a comfortable range for your chosen plants.
  • Start Small: If you’re new to tower gardening, begin with a few herbs or leafy greens to get the hang of it before expanding your plant selection.

Bonus Tip: Consider using a window ledge or a small corner for a countertop herb garden alongside your tower system. This way, you can have a wider variety of fresh herbs readily available for your culinary creations. For more information on gardening in small spaces, check out this article.

Living the RV life doesn’t have to mean sacrificing fresh, homegrown food. With a tower garden, you can enjoy the satisfaction of cultivating your own greens and herbs, adding a touch of home wherever the road takes you!
