Nothing excites me more than seeing new growth on one of my babies, whether it’s a flower, a fruit or a vegetable.
OK, That’s a little bit of a lie, but anyway, some of you may or may not know about my aero garden, a gift to me from my brother a couple of years ago. This thing is an amazing way to grow herbs, veggies or flowers inside your home and all that is needed is air and water!! Occasionally, some liquid nutrients also (a light will tell you when it’s time for that)
So this time, I planted veggies for making salsa, cherry tomatoes, and jalapeno peppers. The tomatoes flowered and produced early on, yet the peppers just kept flowering and I was losing all hope of pepper production until Saturday when, after listening to me whine my husband walked in the dining room and took a look at my plant. There! One is growing right there, he pointed and I finally saw it. I was just short of jumping up and down, so excited was I!
Of course, I had to take a picture.
Now, in all fairness, I have to say that I chose the wrong tomatoes for salsa making, and besides, the tomatoes are pretty much done and the peppers are just starting so….
Have any of you ever tried to use an aero garden? What were the results? I’d love to hear about it! Last year when I had the herb garden, I had basil coming out of my ears! 🙂
