Ya' know it's funny, I never

Ya' know it's funny, I never saw an aerogargen infomercial til just the last few weeks thanks to TiVo, otherwise it might have changed my good image of them. I bought one because it was Amazon's deal of the day, an AG7 for $100.

I've never understood why they won't let you choose your seed kit. I can't imagine the kit is finished and shrinkwrapped in China, don't they do that here? Let them shrinkwrap the AG in China and throw in whatever seed pack a person wants when they order it. Makes perfect marketing sense to me but what do I know?

Lettuce is a good thing for men...rabbit like lettuce, man shoot rabbit, skin it, eat it. What's not to like? Seriously, I went on a strictly salad and wine diet for three days instead of steak, potatos, beans and beer. I gained ten pounds!

The herb appeal set is a nice

The herb appeal set is a nice enough freebie. I use the cutting boards, and got some ideas from the recipe booklet. I agree they should drop the "$65 value" hype and shed a bit more of their infomercial image. Just call it a "free gift" and leave it at that.

But I think every Aerogarden this past year has come with a coupon for the herb appeal set. Maybe they're discontinuing that, but... My eyes skated right past it.

It's a pity you can't choose whatever kit you want when you order an AG. I have decided between vendors, and even between models, based on what starting kit it came with, and on the hardware choice, felt a bit silly doing it. (It was a close call between the Deluxe, Pro200, and AG6ElitePlus. Buying the mini from the vendor who let me pick which flowers I wanted was a no brainer.) But I think salad greens is the ideal first kit, because it grows so fast. Well, at least for most women. Guys seem less likely to value lettuce.

But then, I'd still like to be able to assemble-own-kit, mix and matching flower & herb pods, etc. It's amazing how many permutations they covered with the 3-pod herb kits and still didn't get the combination I wanted. But then - we're the kind of people they made the Master Gardener kit for, right?

yeah, it's a cook book, cooking DVD and some cutting boards, nothing you couldn't get for free. Now if they'd offer an extra seed kit or two that would be a whole different story. I'll pass.

I remember you were saying a while back how it would be good to have a gift-volume deal. This was a nice one, not so lofty in price as the 3-for-$449 deals, volume deal accessible with purchase of 2. (Even in a good year, I don't have 3 people on my $100+ Christmas gift list...) I didn't really look at the $65 today-only gift thing. Thought it was the same cutting-board + how-to-herb add-on thing that they always have, wasn't it? I got my how-to-herb things when I got my first AG's.

I saw that, not a bad a deal!

I saw that, not a bad a deal! What'd you think about the free $65 gift today only? Looks to be worth maybe a tenth of that, to me at least.
