This is an image sequence of my tower garden taken over one month. Lights remained on for 20 hours out of the day, and images were captured at 30 minute intervals. Dark images were removed for clarity.
The tower system was graciously provided by my uncle and is made by JuicePlus: http://www.towergarden.com/
All images were captured with a Canon Powershot A720 operating on an SD card loaded with a Canon Hackers Development Kit (CHDK) intervalometer script. Hey, its cheap and it works!
Plants include: Thyme, Chives, Spinach, Sage, Rosemary, Dill, Purple Basil, Oregano, Buttercrunch Lettuce, Cilantro, Sweet Basil, Bok Choy, Swiss Chard, Arugula, Bibb Lettuce, Sugar Snap Pea, Cherry Tomato, Siberian Dwarf Kale, (Gourmet Lettuce X 2)
I would like to note that while setting up the system was relatively involved, the resulting labor to growth ratio has been remarkably consumer sympathetic. While this previous statement may be more of a comment on hydroponics in general, the lack of mess, decision complexity applied to the consumer, and raw volumetric growth has been surprisingly optimal.
