I have no idea how long that

I have no idea how long that would take from seeds.  Peat with his strawberry plants may have some experience with that?

How about transferring some

How about transferring some of your buzzy kit's strawberry into the AG? Maybe store it and wait until the kit starts throwing out runners?

Read somewhere that marigolds are good companion plants for tomatoes.  Maybe just for soil?

Oh, PS - if you like the idea

Oh, PS - if you like the idea of flowers, but aren't sure about the time to flower production... Marigolds are very quick. So are monkey flowers, but those seeds are harder to buy. Not that either really go with the colors in the English Cottage Garden, but eh. So, could replace the stock pod with a faster marigold pod or something... Or you might like the stock better than I did.

I'd pick the English Cottage

I'd pick the English Cottage Garden kit, or the romaine lettuce.

Yes, you have lettuce growing in soil. But - lettuce in the AG grows much faster, and with two going, you'll have a steady salad harvest. Very good use of an AG!

The English Cottage Garden is simply pretty. If you have two kits, you could mix & match, pick your favorite 2 flowers. (I'd skip the stock flowers, and instead plant a second twinkle phlox.) But I believe in planting flowers in the spring.

But then I got the pumps
But then I got the pumps going for nothing don't you think? Which is less energy? The AG3 or a clip on lamp with a 26W CFL 6500k bulb? I have 4 lights not currently in use that I just bought yesterday in anticipation of my cukes, cipollini onions and kale that I plan on ordering today.

Really? I mean I like flowers

Really? I mean I like flowers but is it even worth it?

IDK I think I should use the space and put a light over it and grown something else. Its sad that I cant think of a thing I REALLY want to grow in there

I saw some Strawberry plants

I saw some Strawberry plants outside at Home Depot yesterday but my instincts told me to walk away. I have a fear of bringing something home that will have bugs in it & would hurt all my other babies I worked so hard to grow!
