Gardening

We’ve been wanting to garden for a few years now, but we’ve been living in apartments. Over the summer, a friend let us borrow her Aero Garden. She has a very sustainable outdoor vegetable garden, and she had gotten this as a winter hold over.

Indoor Gardening

Craig got us one for Christmas this year, so we could grow our own salad greens. It’s in our kitchen, on the pantry rack next to the cook books. It’s basically self sustaining. All you have to do is add the water, it turns the light on and off, and will let you know when to add nutrients. The lettuce takes 3-4 weeks to grow to full size, and from that point on you can harvest it for up to 4 months.

The Beginning of Lettuce

This is after a week and a half. We’re looking forward to being able to save some money at the grocery store, and have fresh lettuce whenever we want. The Aero Garden can also grow tomatoes, herbs, strawberries, and a few other things. Strawberries seem interesting to me come summer.

I’m looking forward to sharing more pics.
