Me Want!

Thanks to a conversation my aunt was having with her girlfriends on FB about the difficulties of gardening in Colorado I found something that set my heart apounding!


Here is the product description from Amazon:
Enjoy the taste and fragrance of fresh herbs, vegetables and salad greens grown right in your kitchen. The AeroGarden grows them all with no dirt, mess or pesticides. Plants grow in water, nutrients and air, up to twice as fast as plants grown in soil. It’s easy, foolproof, and 100% guaranteed. It’s self-watering and self-feeding. The AeroGarden automatically controls the built-in grow bulbs and tells you when to add more water and nutrients. Grow fresh Italian Basil, Purple Basil, Chives, Dill, Mint, Parsley & Thyme with the included Gourmet Herb Seed Kit. Seed kits for cherry tomatoes, chili peppers romaine lettuce, petunias and more also available.

As magnificent as the 6 pod model show above is, I am leaning toward the 3 pod because I have a tiny kitchen and as much as I like the big one I just can't imagine where it would go without me having to curse it every day. The 3 pod is about the size of a coffee pot and I could stick it in a corner and not be too inconvenienced. And it's on sale for 62% off, which is wonderful when you are trying to convince your husband to get you something he might otherwise find completely ridiculous.

Last year we really meant to plant an herb garden but the veggies and flowers took all of my attention and I never got around to it. And I know I wouldn't do one this summer because I've already decided that I'm ONLY doing flowers. Thanks to modern technology, I can have an herb garden without having to do any gardening, or give up any valuable flower-growing real estate!

Hmmm, doing more research. People seem to say that the bigger one is more versatile and more sturdily built...

Well, I'm cooling off on this one a bit. Thinking maybe I should try an old fashioned window sill kit for $20 first... But it was nice to dream for a little while!

Now you don't have you pack it, and you can get one in Vegas.
