Product Review: AeroGarden

Bryan had been eyeing an AeroGarden for months, so I decided to get him the three-pod AeroGarden for Christmas. The thought of growing herbs and other fresh items in an indoor garden in the dead of a Michigan winter was also a big decision on why we thought we’d try one.

Bryan planted basil, dill and thyme a few days before Christmas and we started picking basil within a month. We used the fresh basil on pizzas, in caprese salad and in the mozzarella basil panini (mozzarella and basil between sourdough, buttered and pressed in our panini maker), pictured right with tomato basil soup. The basil was fragrant and the taste brought us to summer meals.

Seeing the success with the three-pod AeroGarden, Bryan received a seven-pod AeroGarden for his birthday (from his parents), which he promptly planted with lettuce seeds.

Less than a month later, we are picking lettuce and using it for salads, including the Fried sous vide egg yolk salad and a chicken taco salad for lunch today. The greens are tasty and it is nice to have the unit on our island available to us at any time.

All in all, we are very impressed by the AeroGardens we have. Unfortunately we didn’t check the water level before going away for a three-day weekend, so our herbs dried up. However, we started a new herb kit this week and look forward to basil, Italian parsley and oregano (Italian herb seed kit) in a few short weeks.
