With Tower Garden, there are so many plants you can grow and many ways to use your harvests. Below are just a few of our favorite crops to grow indoors that will help you make the most out of your homeschool garden!

For salads or smoothies:
• Lettuce — all varieties
• You can easily pair lettuce with a variety of raw vegetables (carrots, cherry tomatoes, celery, yellow bell peppers, cucumbers, etc.) and allow your student to choose what they put on their plates to celebrate their lettuce harvests.

• Butterhead/buttercrunch and romaine are popular favorites.

• Kale — all varieties

• Kale is a great choice for smoothies. Try blending 3 cups of frozen pineapple, 1 banana, 2 cups unsweetened almond milk, and 1 cup of fresh kale for a delicious green smoothie.

• Lacinato/dinokale is nice and smooth with a rich, dark green color.

• Basil — for pasta sauce, pizzas, lasagna, and pesto recipes

• Bok choy — for stir-fry dishes or serve raw on sandwiches and in salads.

• Swiss chard — a power green that blends well in soups and smoothies • Arugula — a little bit goes a long way (Some varieties are spicy!)

Herbs you can grow and enjoy fresh year-round:
Chives, Cilantro, Dill, Oregano, Parsley, Sage, Thyme, Lavender

Other plants to try:
• Spinach

• Since spinach requires a “cold snap” for germination, plant seeds in rockwool cube(s) and place in a tray or bowl with water. Then place the tray in the refrigerator for 2 weeks before transferring the rockwool cube(s) to the Tower.

• Stevia

• Cutting celery

• Mint
