Miracle-Gro AeroGarden 8 weeks in – serious tomato action
January 22, 2018
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 of time until they mature and we’ve got tasty snacks in the middle of winter!
Miracle-Gro AeroGarden Bounty Elite: First two weeks
December 15, 2017
On Thanksgiving weekend (aka Black Friday to Cyber Monday) we were lured to open our wallet by something that my fiance and I had been looking at buying for quite some time, The Miracle-Gro’s AeroGarden. If you’ve never seen one before, they’re desktop units that can support from 3 to 9 “pods” (aka plants) and have everything you need for an indoor, desktop based, hydroponic garden. The AeroGarden is the autopilot of the gardening world. As long as you can follow a few simple directions (adding water, nutrients, etc), you’re guaranteed to have plant growth. Miracle-Gro is so confident in this that all the standard pods offer a guarantee of germination (the plant sprouts) or they’ll replace it for free. So let’s talk about what we got in the first two weeks.
Arduino Makes Halloween Better!
November 3, 2010
Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. It’s a fun holiday where people get to mess around, have a good time… and family isn’t involved. For me, since about middle school, it’s been all about the decorating. I’ve done a lot of different decoration effects over the years, once I went as far as turning our 3 car garage into an haunted house once. This year wasn’t quite so elaborate, but it was greatly improved by the use of Arudino.

The Kindle 1 came with a case, albeit not a great one. For most of the life of the Kindle 2, I didn’t have one, but fairly recently I was given a beat up spare to use. I stick the Kindle in my fatigue pockets all the time, and the case makes it so I don’t have to worry about breaking another screen (did that with a K1). Since I’ve had the case on the K2, I’ve grown somewhat attached to having it. I figured it would be nice to have another… and let’s be realistic… this new case has a freaking light built in! How cool is that?!
