A Carton of Gardens for Urban Patios Everywhere
May 10, 2010 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
So you want to grow your own veggies but don’t have a garden, no problem! Garden in the Koop’s Patio Garden brings the garden to you in an egg carton filled with something for your patio, your deck or even the fire escape.
Included in the kit are six favorites that like smaller spaces including Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean, because it “took Jack straight up so it doesn’t need much room, just a bean pole!”
What’s in the box?
12 seed packs, soil, name tags and a “whole lot of love.”
Includes: Red Pear Tomato, Yellow Pear Tomato, French Breakfast Radish, Benning’s Green Tint Squash, Sweet Chocolate Pepper, Kentucky Wonder Pole Bean.
Garden in the Koop is housed in a reclaimed, two hundred foot chicken house on a historic farm. Their products are carefully observed by their “peaceable kingdom of goats, chickens, cats, dogs, an occasional skunk, the rabbits and of course the deer!” says the Koops owners, Laura the gardener, Peg the believer, Tim the earth steward, Marsha, the artist, Ray the creative hand, and Janet the ‘pied piper.’ ”This is where we created the idea and where we grow some of the seeds. Each box is packed, inspected and shipped from our chicken house.”
