For our wedding, my Aunt Connie and my Uncle Mike gave us an aerogarden. It's quite an awesome tool. It's so fun to just plant things, and have plants on hand. First, we grew herbs, then we grew lettuce, and now we are growing tomatoes. I have never talked about it on here, so I thought I would share - now that I have just replanted some seeds.
First, you put the seed pods in their respective holes.
Then you add nutrients to the water that is in the base. Yes, the whole garden is run by only water. There is a little soil in the seed pod, but the roots just grow out into the water.
Then you put domes on top of the starting seed plants. Once the plant starts coming up, you'll take them off.
And then you place the aerogarden on your new aerogarden shelf. Sally had this idea to put the garden on a shelf, so that I had more counter space. BEST IDEA! :) So, thanks to my hubby's help, the shelf is up, and the aerogarden is ready to make tomatoes!!
