Host Allison Schaaf’s husband Brook joins her today as they talk about the benefits and drawbacks of the Lettuce Grow Farmstand system. Lettuce Grow is a self-watering, self-fertilizing hydroponic farmstand that lets you grow greens (and other veggies!) year-round, either inside or out.

Here’s what they have to say:

Benefits of the Lettuce Grow Farmstand:

  • Saves space: it’s a vertical tower requiring little room.
  • Controlled environment: It’s easier than growing plants in a yard because water and nutrients are controlled.
  • Kids can help: It’s fun and easy for even small kids to help with planting and harvesting. Bonus - they just may snack on the lettuce!
  • Fresh greens: The number one benefit is of course having fresh greens to harvest whenever you want them.
  • Sprouting seedlings: We’ve also used it to sprout seedlings to transplant outside.

Drawbacks of Lettuce Grow:
- Cost: It’s an investment and definitely costs more than simply planting a traditional garden.
- Maintenance: Lettuce Grow requires pretty minimal maintenance but you do need to add water and nutrients about once a week. It requires much less maintenance than a traditional garden though.
- Protected Space: You need a protected space from critters like deer and part of it has to be plugged in. You may need either a heater or grow lights depending on where you live.
