What to use my AG3 for next?

Hey guys,

On March 16th I put a mini Jalapeño pod in my AG3 and it has been 2 weeks & I got nuttin, nada, zip!

I like Jalapeños but it seems like a waste of an AG to have a whole plant just for myself. I mean I keep jarred Jalapeño in the fridge and I only eat it once in a while. If the seeds had germinated that would be one thing but now I feel like its a bust.

So what should I put in there now?  Here's.. are my options

A. English Cottage Kits - I have 2 I never used

B. 1 red & 1 yellow AG Cherry Tomato pods - never used & havent had luck with tomatoes in the AG

C. 3 Green Bean pods (and extra seeds) - Already have 1 AG3 with beans & 3 plants in cups.

D. 3 Romaine Lettuce pods - already have Lettuce Vivian & Bibb in pots

E. Plant a non AG seed in a spare pod - what do you suggest? I do have extra strawberry seeds Buzzy sent me!

F. Store it and use the space for something else

I think I am definitely going

I think I am definitely going to use the AG nutes in the vase. I will dissolve 1 tab in 5 1/2 cups of water (the amount the AG3 bowl holds) and fill the vase as needed.

It will give them the best chance at sprouting and actually growing don't you think?

Very interesting! I might have to do a Peat & find me a coke bottle. But I don't drink soda.

So more than likely I will use a pretty vase I have thats similar to the ones the I have the old AG chives, thyme & lettuce in. Those chives are still doing so well! I would if they ever even need nutrients because I sure haven't given them any!

Congrats, Jessi!

P.S. The flowers that develop from buds in water are leached of color. Very cool-looking! Waxy and pale. Dunno if you could get them more colorful by adding nutrients to the vase. Should try that sometime. But I like the waxy ones.

After all this! The jalapeno

After all this! The jalapeno decided to sprout! LOL!

I'm thinking that I will let it get a good start in the AG3 then transplant it to soil and use the AG for something else.

Snapdragons and twinkle phlox

Snapdragons and twinkle phlox make great cut flowers - they last well, and continue developing new blossoms in water for a week.

I think flowers aer a great choice!  Just think how nice it would be to have a few fresh flowers on your table at dinner.  I haven't done it yet, no room, but have been thinking about how to do it myself.

Go for the flowers!

I would love to do the

I would love to do the Strawberries so this might be the winner. I have to give it just a little more thought and am still taking suggestions!

I called AG & told them about the failed jalapeno & they wanted to send me something else so I choose...

Incredible Edibles Seed Kit (3-Pod)  Includes Snapdragon, Dianthus, and Marigold.

I read on http://www.tmseeds.com/product/299.html that Marigolds help tomato plants so I figured I get that also because I love Gisette's snapdragons!

...But, you probably have

...But, you probably have more than enough time for a lettuce or flower garden (3-5 months) before you'll see runners off the strawberries you're growing from seed.
