The $10 Tomato

Well, not really. Because there ought to be more tomatoes coming.

And really, I thought this was a great deal. At a garage sale, I bought an early version of the Aero Garden. It had never been used, and included the seeds. All for $10. I thought the seeds might be too old to sprout, but there were no problems at all.

I really wanted this to grow herbs in the winter. This time of year, I don't really need to be growing tomatoes indoors, but I wanted to see how well it would work, so I set it up and let it go.

The plants grew well, and then I got flowers. And look! A teeny little tomato.

Later, I'll buy an herb kit or maybe one of the plant-it-yourself kits and I can plant my own selection of herbs. If the tomatoes do this well, I'm sure I'll have plenty of fresh herbs this summer.

Well worth the $10, I think.

Why Not? Looks like great fun and $10 is a good deal when compared to the retail price. I too would not pay their regular price, but give it a go at the $10 garage sale special. Yup! A few winter herbs would be my idea, too. I'd be thinking cuttings, not seed for some...
**Still waiting to hear from you on a couple of other subjects.**

Hi, Thanks.
Yes. I'll try a different method to get the email address to you. Oh heck, I'll use a disposable one and hope it does not get abused...
Thanks. cedargeln
