It's here! It's here!

Well I'm so glad there was no one here to see...cos I ran out to the courier driver (in my pjs, cos I just got home from work...showered and thought I'd chill out nice and early), As soon as I got behind my closed door...I must admit to doing a little dance..singing I got my aerogarden.  Really hope hubby hasn't put any hidden cameras up....lol.  So...it's still in it's box...I wanna make a nice cuppa and then open it up and see wots in the box...haha.   Ok, I don't suppose any of you carried on like this with your first aerogarden did you?  Or at least you never admitted it in a public forum....oopsie.  Lol.  Ok, well I'm sure I'll be back in here real soon nagging you all and plus adding pics through various stages.  Talk soon....Mels

Hi Beth...thanks for your

Hi Beth...thanks for your message.  I'm glad to see the ag has the same effect on others as it has me.  By 7.30 this morning...I was all done!  Until I'm ordered to do something else....lol.  I think even Mr cow and Mrs Pig are enjoying the new spotlight....lol.  I'll have to watch those two...make sure they don't steal my herbs once they grow...haha.  I'm not familiar with Maryland, but I will google it and see where you are.  We also get humid summers...humid and hot!  Actually I notice in the manual that optimal temps for the ag are around 16-24 degrees C.  It could get up to 30 or even hotter in the house...unless I've got the air con on.  Esp if I'm not home and the house has been shut up.  If we're to expect 40 degree temps in summer, I'm not sure how hot the house could get to.  If I'm home, once it starts getting to 30's the air con will go on for sure.  Anyway, I just hope our hot summer won't be an issue for my new babies. 

I have a small vege patch in my garden with broccoli, lettuces, strawberrys and cherry tomoatoes, oh and chives.  The caterpillars have eaten heaps of the broccoli, so I wasn't happy about that.  I am planning on building 2 more vege patches that are bigger.  So in my young age of not quite yet 40...I'm starting to develop a bit of a green finger.  I love being in the garden, watering my plants and checking out new growth, watching my flowers bloom, etc.  We're not on acreage but we have a good size block (1298sm), we're lucky enough to have parkland behind us too...which gives us added privacy. 

Well my seeds have been in now for over half an hour...I think I should go check for new growth...don't you?  (lol)

Stay warm Beth.  Bye for now

Hi Mels,   Welcome!  Yes, I

Hi Mels,

  Welcome!  Yes, I was thrilled with my first ag (and the second and the third and...).  I love opening the box, setting it up and deciding what to grow.  I can't wait to see your pictures (yes, I love your kitchen, too ).  I'm in southern Maryland.  We usually get hot and humid summers (not this year, tho).  It is now chilly and dark here.  Do grow any veggies outside? 

Beth

Thanks for that gisette. 

Thanks for that gisette.  I texted hubby earlier and said my prezzie has arrived in the post...he can't believe how spoilt I am...I'd have to agree with him...lol.  I love my kitchen!  In fact I love my home.  We've been here 13 years...I'll give hubby a name...lol...his name is Gary (Gaz).  Anyway...Gaz is a builder, so yes I know I am very fortunate, not only to have him as a builder, but that he actually works on his own home aswell as the paying jobs...haha.  My stove was about 30 years old up until a few months ago...and the kids are thrilled that we finally got a dishwasher this year too.  On the other side of the servery where the dining room is...well once upon a time that was just an ugly old patio.  Then it became a beautiful timber deck...then we had it enclosed and turned into a dining room.  There is plenty of sun that comes through those windows.  In fact it gets quite warm in there.  I am dreading the Queensland summer this year...they are talking about 40 degree temps...Adelaide and Melbourne are already experiencing heatwaves and it isn't even summer yet.  Being from the UK and emigrating here 20 odd years ago...I still haven't climatised...it just keeps getting hotter and hotter.  Oh and by the way I'm up at 5am on weekdays with Gaz...and no...I don't go back to bed....lol...I stay up!  So you're in your winter?  Do you get cold winters?  Do you have an aerogarden because you are in an appartment...or you find it more convenient?

I love your kitchen, Mels. I

I love your kitchen, Mels. I think you'll enjoy the Aerogarden light. Mine doesn't fit nearly as well in my kitchen, but we like the light. It's set to come on in the morning before my daughter gets up for school, to make the kitchen bright for her breakfast and lunch making. American high schools are hideous that way - she needs to start walking for the bus at 6:50 am, predawn this time of year. I sleep way past then...

Ok...so I hope I've done this

Ok...so I hope I've done this right?  I think I have the perfect spot for it on my servery....I'll be able to access all those yummy herbs really easily.  I'm looking forward to using some imagination to make good use of all those herbs once they're ready to pick.

Yay, congratulations,

Yay, congratulations, mels!

Oh, I was pretty psyched when my first arrived. I was pretty psyched when each of them arrived. But not nearly as thrilled as I was when the first little lettuces started hatching!
