Kelis is no doubt one of my favorite style icons of all time. I could not get her lyrics out of my head today. Diamonds on my neck, diamond on my grill… I’m bossy! There is no question why that diamonds are the girl’s best friend. I was browsing to see some of my favorite pieces. Can’t wait to spend 30k on jewelry on a causal Tuesday afternoon.
Gardening in bottle caps is a fun concept that’s well-suited to urban settings, but consumers interested in growing more substantial crops might be better off with Whirligro instead. Targeting those with limited growing space, Whirligro uses spiral-shaped tubes to elevate food crops off the ground and enable greater production.
Designed primarily for fast-growing leaf crops, Whirligro uses durable, transportable growing tubes that can each hold three plants. Each Whirligro unit, in turn, holds 10 tubes spiraling around a central post, offering the combined ability to grow 30 plants in an area smaller than one meter by one meter. Plants grow through holes in the plastic tubing, reducing any weeding requirements to a bare minimum; because the plants are off the ground, meanwhile, pests tend not to be a problem, the device’s Scottish maker says. Watering can be done by hand or with a small drip irrigation system. Pricing for the Whirligro ranges from GBP 55 to GBP 140, depending on size.
No end in sight to the urban gardening trend. Who will help bring the Whirligro to urban farmers in your neck of the woods?
