Huerto casero, de agricultura ecológica claro

Root Viewer, huerto transparente

Que tengamos un huerto en casa no implica que sea de agricultura ecológica, pero ya que nos ponemos, pues qué mejor que no usar abonos químicos para nuestro pequeño cultivo.

Tener un huerto en casa no es ninguna locura, hay muchos libros que ilustran sobre el tema que cada vez los veo más destacados en las librerías, y en realidad cualquiera con una pequeña terraza en casa puede tener un mini-huerto. Y sin terraza se hace un poco más complicado, pero todos tenemos plantas en casa, y podríamos sustituírlas por cultivos.

El objetivo es tener un entretenimiento que además nos aporte algunas verduras sabrosas. Y tal vez del mini huerto casero algún día lleguemos a ver huertos en las azoteas de los edificios. Es una cuestión de oferta-demanda. Construyen edificios de lujo en las ciudades con piscina en la azotea, porque es un reclamo para el comprador. Pero si se pusieran de moda los cultivos caseros en las terrazas, tal vez en vez de piscina, o además, los promotores harían un hueco para un huerto urbano en los edificios como reclamo para el comprador.

Mientras tanto nos quedamos con nuestra terracita (los que la tengan) y unas cuantas macetas para cultivar un mini-huerto. Dependemos de la temporada de las verduras evidentemente, pero con el tiempo podremos cultivar determinadas variedades durante casi todo el año.

Para los que piensen que es demasiado embarcarse en un huerto casero, aún queda una oportunidad para acercarse al cultivo hogareño, que no requiere macetas ni cuidados salvo un poco de agua: el "Root Viewer" o huerto transparente.

Se trata de un kit que consta de un soporte para tres tubos de ensayo muy anchos que rellenamos con unas píldoras de tierra que acompañan, y unas semillas de zanahoria, cebolleta y rábano. Los tubos de ensayo son de plástico transparente lo que nos permite ver las raices de estas tres variedades vegetales que nos podremos comer una vez hayan crecido en cualquier sitio de nuestra casa cerca de la ventana.

Si buscais en internet "Root Viewer" lo encontraréis. Las cosas no salen como en la foto pero es muy interesante.
