Aerogarden Harvest 360 Review - Week 1 Update

Image
This is my Aerogarden Harvest 360 review at one week. I mostly used the pods from the  Heirloom Salad Greens Seed Pod Kit. Parris Island Romaine The Parris Island Romaine (back center) sprouted first after only a day. It is growing steadily. Several of the seeds sprouted, so I will have to cut back to leave just one when they have come out of the pod a little more.  Baker Creek Boy Choy The bok choy (front right) is in a custom (empty) pod and it sprouted after about three days. Those seeds are from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds . I have fairly good luck growing from Baker Creek seeds in the summer. It's growing very fast and very strong, so I will definitely try more seeds from Baker Creek.  Marvel of 4 Seasons It's hard to see in the photo, but the Marvel of 4 Seasons (front center) has just sprouted. First Week Aerogarden Harvest 360 Review So far, it was very easy to set up. I didn't have any trouble putting in the pods or using the custom pod with my own seeds.  I am wait

Aerogarden Harvest 360° First Look

My vegetable garden has been a bit of a bust this year due to weeks of drought and heat. My winter garden tends to do better, but there has been so little rain and I'm struggling to keep it watered.  I'd been contemplating an Aerogarden for several years and finally decided to try it out when I saw a good Black Friday deal.  Setup took less than five minutes, so that was a plus. An herb kit came with the Harvest, so I started with dill and parsley, my two favorite herbs. I have some lettuce seed pods coming tomorrow, so I just put the caps on top for now.  The directions were not very extensive, but the Harvest was pretty easy to set up. I did watch a few Youtube videos by different users to see if they did anything special with their Aerogardens. Most of the tips I got were for pruning, such as to never prune more than 1/3 of the plant at a time.  I will update on how everything grows in the next few weeks!
