Have a Green Thumb in Minutes!
When the coronavirus hit the United States, we had absolutely no idea what was happening, what was going to happen or how long anything would last. Tim and I heard wild rumors with all sorts of scenarios including running out of food (fortunately, this did not happen). People were hoarding food, toilet paper, cleaning supplies. We couldn't find OTC medicines for our children. It was wild! You all know what I'm talking about!
We had plenty of food, but we had no idea when we would be able to get food again when our stock ran out. We started thinking that we needed to grow our food. I've never considered myself a gardener in any way shape or form. The only thing I have successfully grown are our hydrangeas in our front yard and I've killed plenty of other plants in my years.
I came across AeroGarden systems and read about how easy they are to use. You can grow vegetables, greens, flowers, you name it- right inside your home in a controlled environment.
All you have to do is add water and plant food (which is included when you purchase the seed pods). The plants all grow so quickly! It's remarkable, and exciting!!
After some of our plants are well grown and established in our AeroGarden, we move them into a raised garden outside. As you can see in the pictures below, our herbs are THRIVING outside and it is so fun to have fresh basil on my tomato and mozzarella salad! Tim loves to pick fresh mint and crush it in his bourbon!
There are several different models available. Now that I have grown herbs, lettuce and tomatoes, I am anxious to someday have a farm model so that we can easily grow several things at once!

Here are some images of our AeroGarden and the growing process!
Get yourself an AeroGarden and enjoy your bounty!!! You now have a green thumb!! :)
