GMG's Friday Find: A Farmer's Market in your kitchen!

August is a bountiful month, a time when our gardens are teaming with fresh veggies and fruits, the flowers and herbs are plentiful, and winter still seems far away.  Yet in a few short months the produce will dwindle….what’s a lover of fresh veggies to do?  You can bring the growing cycle inside with an AeroGarden!

What’s an AeroGarden?  A very cool product with grow lights and drop in plug and seed pods.  You add water and the provided nutrients.  The seeds germinate in as little as 24 hours and the roots grow into air and water.  It’s easy, dirt-free, and you can grow almost anything, anywhere and anytime.   With this handy device you can grow salad greens, herbs, tomatoes, peppers , flowers and more!  The AeroGarden reminds you when to add water and nutrients and the grow light automatically turns on and off to provide the “sunlight”.  You can also use cuttings from your summer garden as well as start seeds for spring planting. 

The benefits of indoor gardening are huge. Indoor air is cleaned, fresh herbs are used as needed with no waste, delicious vegetables are available and fresh flowers brighten your day. And if that’s not enough, you save money on grocery shopping.

Now you can have fresh vegetables, herbs and beautiful summer flowers all year round…and when winter dumps the freezing rain, snow and cold temperatures on your outside garden, no worries…the yum of fresh produce  is still growing inside. What do you think? Does all-year-round fresh produce appeal to you?
