Indoor Gardens

Replacement Window Estimates

With the cold weather outdoors and the hint of spring every time we get a warm day, thoughts of starting some seedlings are filling our minds. This week I attended an indoor flower show in Providence RI with my daughter who is 6. I was waiting for her question, “are we going to start a garden again this year”? Last winter we started a few hundred seedlings all over our kitchen and dining room. One of the problems we had was the seeds turned into plants and they all leaned towards the sun at pretty sharp angles. We would have to rotate our plants at least once a day so they would not grow side ways!

Since I sell garden windows and have one sitting around for my kitchen it would make sense that I just install one and let my seedlings grow up toward the sun. It’s odd how I sell and install them for other people but my own hose has to wait. Today I discovered a product that is new to me that I would like to share with everyone:

Aerogarden Free Trial

The time lapse video on their site is rather entertaining and the thought of fresh herbs and flowers year round really impresses me. If you have tried this product please leave a comment.
