Visit Katie Baumann's home in Parke County, and you'll see several tomato and lettuce plants along with a few eggplants.
While the crop isn't unusual, the way they're grown is: they're grown without soil. Instead, the plants are growing on what's known as a tower garden.
The tower garden itself is made up of a plastic tank that holds water and nutrients. On top of that tank is a plastic tube with holes into which seeds are placed. Water and nutrients are pumped up through the tube and trickle down, bringing the water and nutrients to the plants.
Baumann said decided to try growing a tower garden after years of trying to grow a conventional garden.
"I just couldn't do it and was frustrated because I couldn't do it," Baumann remembered. "So I gave up and then this turned up. I said ‘Okay, let's try this again,' because it's really important to me. I want to be growing my own food."
