Aerogarden Ultra LED - First Grow Tomatoes and Greens

Ginger's picture


Yay! Got my new AG Ultra LED and plugged it in tonight.

First planting: test run.

  • fantastico tomato for the long haul

Temporary test plants:

  • toy choi
  • komatsuna
  • Nevada summercrisp lettuce
  • Red Sails looseleaf lettuce

Started in 0.7 EC Urban Farm Fertilizers (UFF) veg formula in rainwater. Because that's what I fed my other AG's today. No special plan.

Outdoor Potatoes and Onions 2015

Ginger's picture


I kinda liked the onions last year, especially because the pansy planted in the onion pot looked great all summer. Maybe that's the onion. Maybe it's the potassium-heavy root-vegetable fertilizer. Let's do it again!

The 2 month onion starts I grew from seed look utterly pathetic. So I also picked up some onion bulbs at a big box store, some of them already sprouted and looking 10x tougher than my seedlings. Planted both. The green onions from last year are waking up and resuming life in their saddle planters.

Outdoor Peas 2015

Hey wow! Pea seeds don't last long! frown With my usual sprout 'em indoors pea trick, I wasn't getting enough germination to fill my pea fences. Rather than wait for seeds to arrive ordered online (because I was already planting late), I bought a bunch of seeds from Walmart and Home Depot, and now have eight varieties of peas planted.

Outdoor Cabbage and Spinach 2015

The cabbages and spinach finally moved outdoors on April 2, a few days before Easter. Last year we really enjoyed the Chinese cabbage (and declared cauliflower never-again). This year I wanted to try Caraflex pointy cabbages, but too many other people did too - the seeds were sold out. So the lineup is:

5 Kaboko Chinese cabbages - hit from last year
2 Early Jersey Wakefield stone-head cabbages - new
1 Wa Wa Tsai - an even smaller Chinese cabbage (started with the spinach)

Outdoors 2015

Ginger's picture

...Because we start outdoor plants indoors. wink The pansies are coming along well, now 6 weeks old. Last weekend started a 6-pack of white onions. Today started 7 cabbages - 2 Early Wakefield pointy cabbages, 1 "small Chinese", and 4 Kaboko Chinese cabbages. Those were excellent last year. And yup, they say to start 6-8 weeks before planting out!

It's nice to remember the snow is temporary...
