Coming soon to the Indoor Gardener...Aerogarden Snow Peas and Salads

Over the course of this blog, we've covered basil, herbs, cherry tomatoes, and romaine lettuce. The basil was an overwhelming success. The herbs yielded some great parsley plants. The cherry tomatoes were a little bit of a disappointment, as was the romaine lettuce. My beautiful indoor garden was then overrun by little critters.

Getting rid of the tomato plants seemed to get rid of the whiteflies, but I'm still paranoid that they'll be back. So my kitchen and the Aerogarden area is due for a top-to-bottom cleaning, and the kitchen window is going to stay closed.

But in the meantime, I went to the Aerogarden Outlet to try to find some seed packs on sale. I decided on these:

I'm most excited about the snow peas. I'm not holding out much hope for the baby greens or the mesclun after my experiences with the romaine lettuce, but if I can get just a few salads out of it, I'll consider it a success. As luck would have it, I recently started to try to lose weight with Nutrisystem diet, and one of the requirements of that diet is to eat lots of vegetables.

As Douglas MacArthur once said, "I shall return". Stay tuned!
