“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow” – Audrey Hepburn
This quote is really why I love gardening. It’s hard to be a depressed gardener because you are really looking forward to tomorrow. Even when crops fail, the rain doesn’t come, or in my case your attacked by cicadas, I can still find hope.
When something goes wrong there is always another thing growing behind it. I might lose one cucumber plant but believe me I have five more just waiting for their opportunity to shine. The hardest part for me is really when I can’t garden.
Guess what, I found a solution.
I’ve heard a lot about Aerogarden. The price was crazy so I was not about to pull the trigger on $100 mini indoor garden. I felt like as usual I was being stalked and I found one one sale and with coupons it was a bargain I couldn’t pass up. For $50 I invested in an Aerogarden Harvest and a 9 Pod Grow Anything Kit.
With the help of my husband I was able to get it set up quickly and get some quick growing veggies in the pods. I decided for this first trial I am growing lettuce and spinach. My family consumes both of these things frequently and they normally grow pretty quick while in the garden.
I will keep you all posted on the success of this project. Let’s hope it keeps me busy enough to not buy large amounts of new seeds. Do we ever really need more seeds?
