Randomness – AeroGarden

Posted on by

Randomness is a post I came up with to share with you all the other things in my life. I love books and blogging, but I also do other things. I wanted a post where I could share with you some of those other things, products, purchases, and more….

One of the gifts I got at Christmas (2017) was the AeroGarden Herb Kit. My son helped me set the Garden up and has been helping me keep it going. I like having fresh herbs at my fingertips and ones that last. I’m considering getting another AeroGarden but with a different seed pods.

The AeroGarden has many different pod type options you can go with, so if you want something different or more then one garden you can pick and choose. Cherry Tomato Seed Pods, Salsa Garden Seed Pods, Harvest Cherry Tomato Seed PodsSalad Greens Mix Seed Pods, & others. 

Day 1:

It has a fully interactive touch screen control panel that tells you when to add water, reminds you when to add plant food, and automatically turns lights on and off.

Here we have our Seed Pods set into the spots we want.

Day 6:

On Day 6, we started to see some plant growth with a few of the herbs.


Day 10:

On Day 10, we see more growth and some of the lids could come off.

Day 15:

On Day 15, more plants have popped up and are growing taller. 

Day 18:

Day 27:

Boy do these herbs look amazing.


My husband did good on picking out a Christmas gift. I didn’t have the AeroGarden on my wish-list, but I’m so happy with the product. The plants keep growing and all I have to do is trim now and then. When I cook I have fresh herbs and don’t have to buy from the story.
Really great product and gift idea.

  2. I love growing my own stuff. I can’t wait until I can plant tomatoes, I eat more fo them than anything else. I don’t use as many herbs as I should. I’m glad this worked out great for you.

    • It’s wonderful. My hubby thought he got the tomato plants since that is what we eat a lot of too for salads and taco night, but the herbs have been great. I think when they do stop, my next will be the tomatoes. Thank’s for visiting.

  3. What a awesome herb garden!! I’ve seen these and always wondered how they worked,I would love to grow tomatoes year round!! Ty angela for sharing!! Shared on all my socials!!

    • You can buy the tomato seed pods to grow. That’s what my hubby thought he got, but it had herbs instead, which is ok. We like the herbs. I never would have thought to get this product, but now that we have it. I love it. It’s so easy and after 70days it’s still going strong.

  4. Oh wow Angela what a fantastic gift. I’m putting it on my list for any type of gift. Thanks for sharing your randomness with us!

    • You are welcome!

  5. This is so cool. I can never keep things alive, but this looks like it would help with my brown thumb! Great post!

    • I wasn’t having much luck with herbs outside and this solved the problem. They have all the water they need, the roots are in water all the time, they get plant food, which helps them grow, and they have the correct amount of light. It’s been wonderful and after 70days they are still going.

  6. These look great!!! And so very healthy!! Nothing better than growing your own. Enjoy!!

    • I can’t agree more. I love growing. It was one of the things we did growing up was grow our own vegetables and we had chickens for eggs, now that I’m in the city it’s harder. I had trouble keeping the herbs alive outside in our CA weather, but with the AeroGarden they just thrive and get what they need too not much or too little. It’s perfect and I get to show my son who loves to help. ^_^
