Hi there,

Well, it has certainly been awhile since I last posted. Life does get in the way sometimes. Anyway…

Summer left us a while ago and winter is here. What we find missing in our diet is the wonderful veggies and herbs from our CSA. Tired of buying organic greens in the clamshell package that get soggy after a day or two, we decided to experiment with growing our own in the winter.

Now as much as we wanted to grow our own salad greens and herbs we are not adventurous or brave enough to start with seedlings in little pots and deal with grow lights, etc. so we researched and found the AeroGarden. Once we made the decision, we went the whole way and purchased two of them – one for salad greens and one for herbs.

We were a bit skeptical, so I decided to photo log the way to fresh salad greens and herbs. Rather than posting a week of nothingness at a time, here is the journey from seedlings in pods to really good food!

Day of Planting:

The basics – the garden, seed pods and getting started. It is a very simple process helped along with the “Quick Start Guide”. In no time at all, we had two gardens planted.

On the version we purchased — the “AeroGarden Bounty” there is a great graphic screen display that prompts for nutrients and water levels. You can set the light height based on  how you want the gardens to grow and adjust as they start producing.

Week 2 – we are moving along and watching what seems to be a slow process… but not really as you will see.

Next up – it’s starting to look like a garden!

Take care,
