Miracle-Gro AeroGarden 8 weeks in – serious tomato action

Just two months ago we bought a Miracle-Gro AeroGarden Bounty Elite as a Black Friday deal. Previously I covered the activity in the first two weeks of growth. At the time I felt it was surprisingly fast and continue to feel that way. In just 6 weeks from planting we’d grown from pods, to sproutlings, to decent sized plants with flowers, to visible tomatoes! So now it’s just a matter...

Winter Urban Garden Shopping: Half Moon Bay Nursery

Dateline: 2015-11-22 Way back in September, at the end of the summer season, we talked about ours plans for a winter crop. Unfortunately for “life happens” reasons, we didn’t really get around to doing much until November. It’s a little late to get planting for winter, but San Francisco winters are mild and we figured it was worth a shot anyway. A few weeks ago we tried Home Depot for...
