Ron’s latest fascination – the Aerogarden, is the first thing he literally RUNS to see when he gets home. The kit comes pre-seeded with 8 types of herbs. He stares at it for a good long minute (each!) and blesses each of them with a few sprays of water (which i think is fortified with all kinds of vitamins and minerals ). Hydroponics is nothing new, but to us, its quite amazing – we’ve got our own little gourmet herb garden. The impressive brochure it came with depicts an Aerogarden tray with a full bush of herbs on it. There is no soil, but plant growth is completely supported by water and light – fake sun, i presume. OK, so i don’t know the technicalities of it, but it’s quite cool.
