Aerogardening

I bumped into the idea of indoor gardening using hydroponic technology recently, which got me on a whole other bandwagon. Imagine that. There are a couple of different systems out there, so I started my usual obsessive investigation of such devices that entailed days of online research and a couple of trips to Bed, Bath, and Beyond before settling on the Aerogarden 3, shown here. I got this one on Amazon for $49 with free shipping.

For once in my life, I am starting off conservatively with a new project. I went with the smaller three pod version rather than the six podder to try hydroponic gardening out on a smaller scale. My initial plan was that if I like the three pod version, that I am growing flowers in right now hopefully to use on my cakes, then I would buy the larger one for herbs. At this point I think the smaller Aerogarden will be all that I need. I will probably plant my herbs in containers outside as I usually do, or I can always plant herbs in this one in the next cycle. It's too early to tell yet which direction I will go with this; let's just wait and see how this first project turns out. I "planted" my garden on February 27 and now have two pods beginning to sprout. So far so good.

I know someone who has an Aerogarden and she really enjoyed it. She used hers for herbs mainly. I always thought they were a cool idea!

All three pods have started sprouting now. I am crossing my fingers that they keep growing. They are so tiny and seemingly so fragile right now!

Oooh, let's hope it continues to grow as well as it is now! My friend's crocuses in her garden just started coming up too... I'm so excited for spring to be here!

Isn't it nice to hear the birds singing in the morning and seeing flowers emerging?! Spring came so quickly...as if we just woke up one morning and it was here!
