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 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 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
