On these cold days of winter (think Chicago, north shore, over a foot of snow on the ground, 40mph winds and below zero temperatures today) it is nice to be able to pick herbs from your kitchen counter.
After waiting six weeks, the AeroGarden is providing this for me. I consider it a luxury. But so is massage, a trip to Europe or dinner at a special restaurant. The Garden cost $159.00 plus tax, the herb kit cost $55.00 plus tax. The kit I am growing contains seven herbs. I have yet to know how long the herbs will keep growing. But it works. The good...no trip to the grocery store. Easy set up. Fresh herbs at your fingertips. Bonus the bright light may even be a help for people with SAD (seasonal affective disorder). The bad if it only last a week of harvesting--I am spending about $500.00 for an ounce for herbs. The jury for me is still out. So far...so good. Have you tried it? What are your experiences? Is it worth the price? Has anyone used it for anything besides herbs? For a progress report on my AeroGarden since its inception go to http://garden-goddess.blogspot.com
