Last year I picked up an AeroGarden for Shala. Since doing so – we have grown tons of lettuce, basil, parsley, dill and cilantro. It really has been a neat lil’ toy – but most importantly it has allowed for things during these cold months that we wouldn’t normally be able to grow.
This morning we picked Cilantro & Basil (regular & purple). And we still have a bunch left to pick.
Wondering if anyone else has one of these guys? I know they are pricey – but at the same time… so is regular gardening (when you are a true addict). We like ours, and are amazed at how fast & effecient things grow in it. So in other words…
Are you an AeroGardener? And if so – do you think yours is as cool as we think ours is?
Those are beautiful! Yum! 🙂 I have ordered some seeds and hope to get started with some herbs in my raised beds… This looks like a nice way to have a great year-round supply
It’s very tempting seeing yours in action. I want one! It looks like they have a short and a tall one, is yours the tall one?
@Amy – Ours is one that grows as the plant grows. You can adjust it up pretty high – couple feet I think.
I’ve had my aerogarden for 2 years now and love the red cherry tomatoes. The yellow tomatoes were bitter. I am now having trouble removing the calcium build-up from the hard water. Any suggestions?
@Kyle – absolutely – use some dilluted white vinegar!
I have one, but I’ve not used it because I heard the flavor is significantly reduced in the aerogardens…is that the case? Is there even a noticeable flavor difference in aero vs organic (like w/hydro vs. organic)?
