Tomatoes from The Future

During our engagement, Andy got really excited about using the registry scanner gun. When left on his own for a few minutes in the vast Macy's housewares section, he found one thing he wanted: an Aerogarden.


We also registered for these:


We set it up a couple nights ago, and it rocks! It's not as eyesore-ish as I had feared, and it's in our downstairs room so it's pretty out of the way. Obviously I can't tell you yet if it works, but I'll be documenting the progress here. It should take 4-7 days for the first sprouts to pop up. There is only space for one type of crop at a time, so of course we did the cherry tomatoes first. How awesome would it be to have fresh, homegrown tomatoes in the middle of winter? I'm excited to see how this experiment goes.

I. Am. So. Jealous.

I have wanted those for sooooo long! I know, I'm a freak.

I was blasting through on Google Reader and it took me a minute to realize this was you! BTW, I want one of these. But I think I'll plant tomatoes outside. xoxo

I want one of these too! Keep us updated on the progress because my husband is a tomato fiend! :)
