I’m showing the steps I take to make a grow tower. I show the tools I use and the process to begin laying out and marking the hole placements. As I say in the video, I tend to get pretty anal with some things. As a former long-time carpenter, using math, laying out and marking for a job are examples of that. The steps I go through are really more for me to stay in practice. You can just eyeball the whole thing if you want. After all, we ain’t buildin’ a rocket ship here.

Im currently growing tomatoes, strawberries, sweet peas, green onions, and lettuce in these. I only have four in my greenhouse at the moment, but Im working on more.

    Thank you. It's good to hear feedback on the quality of the video and instruction. I worry sometimes that I get too detailed or maybe focus on something that doesn't truly help. Hope it helps you.

    Somehow your comment was marked as spam. Tired to mark it as "not spam" but doesn't work. Do you have someone following and harassing you?

    Thank you but if I were smart I would have started doing this a loooong time ago. Glad the layout helps you. The detail gets a little boring for many but there are always some that it can help.

    Thanks. Lots of things that could be reused to support ourselves and save them from the landfill.
