Aerogarden Ultra LED - First Grow Tomatoes and Greens

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.

2014 Aerogarden Greens and Flowers

The minis continue here from the 2013 topic, but the toy choi/green onions are 1 week old now - time for a 2014 topic.

Buttercrunch, Mesclun and Arugula Lettuces via The Kratky Method

Finally got around to making my grow containers that fit perfectly on my window sills. Inspired by the Modern Sprout chalk board design - I love them!

2013 Grow Log :)

Finally got some stuff in the mail! 

IndoorSalad Lettuce Splashers Test

This topic started mixed-in with a Kale grow comparing kale grown in Aerogarden, manual hydroponic "splasher", and soil. But, in the Indoor Salad book, one of my DIY projects is a splasher. So I started out just wanting to test the instructions for the DIY project, since it's been a while. Then I wanted to try out my new 1-part vegetative organic nutrients vs. one-part vegetative inorganic nutrients.

Cream of Lettuce Soup

Tis the season! For lettuce to end. Yup, my favorite way to eat lettuce is fresh-picked, just enough for supper. But sometimes a huge lettuce harvest happens anyway.

Spring 2013

 It's spring! Saith the calendar. The weather doesn't say that as clearly. Last snow was... Thursday, with more coming tomorrow. But! There's a whole week with no temperatures forecast below 28 degrees! Close enough for the earliest stuff! Planting out pre-sprouted peas this afternoon, planted spinach and radish seeds, have bunch of transplant greens and pansies still protected indoors.

Fall Crops 2012

 The fall crops are peas (super snappy edible-podded and sugar sprint snap peas), lettuce (mostly romaine and buttercrunch), and a single surviving baby choi. I started a bunch of peas under the melons in August, but they got very spindly that way. A few more replaced where the beans were, late in August, but half of those died somehow. So, not a lot. At least aphids don't seem to be infesting the greens this year.

Aerogarden Lettuce & Flowers 2012

Should have put this in a new topic last week... No longer 2011!

Replanted the 7-pod garden yesterday, and started replacements for the 3-podders as well, in a Park Starts block. Camera battery died before I got pix of the minis but they look much the same, except the Korean red curl is getting kinda spent.(Edit:  added mini pix.)
