My mother wanted an Aerogarden indoor hydroponics kit to grow lettuce in the winter so she got one for Christmas last year, the 7 pod Classic model. She harvested lettuce from Jan-May, after that she just used her outdoor real garden. That thing is really neat, if you are into gardening as a hobby. With the seed kit prices it isn't an economical way to grow veggies, but more of a fun little hobby. Watching the plants grow, you get to see the progress of each one on a day by day basis and get to "know" the plant, a bit like having a pet plant, much different than a garden in the summer with rows of things. But then you eat your pet plant, in the case of the lettuce. It was very good lettuce. This year I got her a couple more seed kits, she's going to try Cherry Tomatoes this winter/spring and as long as the harvest lasts into the summer, and cascading petunias next fall. This is a very good picture that depicts about what the garden looked like during the full harvest season... I didn't get any pics of it in full bloom myself, but it really did look like this picture. The other is how it looked before the seeds sprouted.
