My first mess o' greens
It's sprouting, it's sprouting

Everything's coming up roses, oops I mean herbs

Wasn't' it Ethel Merman that sang "Everything's coming up roses for meee and for yooooooo".
I thought of that song this morning when I went into the kitchen saw my new Aero Garden. I bought the Space Saver 6. It's all set up, the grow lights are on and the little plastic domes are over the grow pods waiting for the herbs to start coming up.

Aero Garden

I vacillated for the longest time about buying this. It's pretty expensive and I have a few other things I could spend $149.00 on, I mean heaven forbid I put it in the savings account.
The more I looked into it and read about it and heard comments on it, the more convinced I became I needed one. My primary reason is that I live 27 miles from the closest fresh herb, bummer.
I decided that when I got my next 20% off coupon from Bed Bath & Beyond I was going to have one.
Yesterday in an e-mail from BB&B was a 20% off printable store coupon, so off I went, coupon in hand, fighting the terrible winds, through the mountains, down the valleys, up the ridges...o.k. I exaggerate, but it has been terribly windy here the past few days.

Good things come to those who wait. Yesterday I scored. Not only are they on sale on the web and at BB&B but with my 20% off coupon Wahoooo!!!!!!!!!! $103.19

The herb kit that came with it has Dill, Genovese basil, thyme, mint, chives and oregano.
It comes with everything you need to get started. I figured each pod runs about $2.85 and you'll get a lot of fresh herbs for the money.

Warning, progress reports to follow. I can't wait until the first little green sprouts show up.
