Are you interested in gardening but you just don’t have the time or space? Then a new product from the Japanese company, U-ing, may be the perfect solution for you. They call it the ‘green farm’ and it is flying off the shelves in Japan now.
The smallest green farm module, the ‘Green Farm Cube,’ measures only 23 x 23 x 26 centimeters; that’s even smaller than a toaster. Essentially, it is a tiny automated green house. The larger module, the ‘green farm’ has the following dimensions: 54 x 26 x 30 centimeters. The modules can be put almost anywhere in the home where there is a power supply. They can even be stacked on top of each other to save more space.
The modules provide everything a plant needs to grow. LEDs provide light and imitate the cycle of the sun. Users don’t have to trouble with watering either, as the units automatically control water levels. In fact, you can fill up the tank and the unit will take care of the watering for up to one month. The modules also include an air pump to aerate the units to maintain the moisture balance and temperature. Perhaps one of the best points is you don’t have to use pesticides. The units are well sealed, so they are protected from insects or dust getting in. That is a real bonus for those of us who prefer organically grown vegetables. If you have ever done any gardening you know how troublesome battling insects can be.
According to the company’s website, the units are energy efficient. It will cost you about ￥6 a day to run a Green Farm Cube, the smallest model, and ￥10 a day for the larger Green Farm module.
You can order directly through the company’s site or they are available through other online retailers like Amazon. The Green Farm Cube costs a little over ￥9,000. Bear in mind that you will have to buy additional supplies such as seeds, nutrients, etc.

Five Japanese scuba divers have miraculously been found alive three days after they went missing off the coast of Bali.
Local fishermen discovered the divers clinging to a coral reef. The five women divers were almost 20 kilometers from where they and two other women went missing.
The women could not be rescued by the fishermen due to rough waves. Shortly after their discovery, one was rescued by helicopter and the others were picked up by a rescue boat. Unfortunately, officials have no news of the other two divers.
The seven women began their diving trip under good weather conditions on Friday from Nusa Lembongan, a nearby island. They were experienced divers—all with more than 50 hours diving time. The skipper of their boat said there was a heavy downpour while he was waiting for the divers. The water became cloudy during the heavy rain and he moved the boat about 100 meters away from where they were expected to resurface.
When they did not resurface at the appointed time he searched the area for about an hour before reporting the incident to authorities.
There were reports of heavy rains in the area on that day. Such sudden downpours are very common during the monsoon season, which runs from October to April.
The women appear to have no serious injuries and are currently being treated at two hospitals in Bali.
