Agriculture/Fresh

An AeroGarden is agriculture on a very small scale. They are individual hydroponic gardens that come complete with lights--about the only way I can grow anything indoors in our house with its sparse ambient light. But they allow me to grow herbs, lettuce, flowers, chili peppers and cherry tomatoes all through the long, cold, gloomy New England winter. This is the edge of a leaf of Red Sail lettuce. The Red Sail is one of a few heirloom lettuces that I've got growing in the AeroGarden in our kitchen. (I confess to being an addict--I have seven of the things, six at home and one in the airless, lightless, soulless cube at my office.)

  10. Nice color!! Every time you talk about your aero garden I think that I should have one. The problem is that green things don't grow well if they know I'm around!!
