I planted my first Pro100 on November 1, 2007. This is a Flash movie of its first month. My first kits were a Salad Chef pack (14 pods, sampler of all the salad series kits), plus gourmet herb. I grew 2 herbs (basil and dill are my favorite!), plus some of each of the salad types, to see how I liked them.

Fun with reflective blankets

Other members had mentioned this, but I'd never tried it until today :  using shiny emergency blanket material around the AG to reflect light back onto the plants. I decided to try it, not for the AG's per se, but to try to make the most of my western exposure sliding glass door in my bedroom, to see if my potted pepper might eek out a life indoors.
