Us being semi organic and all, we like to garden some. Granted we live in an apartment so it makes it a little tricky. Think balcony + pots. We've been known to grow heirloom tomatoes and actually be semi successful. As a rider package to our traditional gardening we have an Aerogarden. This baby is amazing! It grows plants from seeds hydroponically under special grow lights. All you have to do is program it and fill with water when the light indicates every week or so. It works so well and so quickly! Here is a shot from our last Aerogarden adventure:
We cut up the sponge. Then placed the seeds between 2 sponges and placed inside the plastic cradles that sit in the tank.
Water continuously runs over the pods which is the key to growing hydroponically (apparently!)
