My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

My Aerogarden

John gave me an aerogarden about a year ago. At the time the herbs on my porch were doing good, so I took on the challenge of growing lettuce and then tomatoes. I never produced much and put it away. I admit, I didn't prune as directions said. My fault, it didn't work. I recently decided to pull it out and plant all the basil seeds.


This time, it's a big success. I get tons of basil. I've made pesto and add basil to numerous pasta dishes. I am so happy with my garden. I love having the herbs growing right in my kitchen. The fresh basil tastes so much better than the waxed basil from the grocery store. Next time, I start another round, I probably don't need so much basil. I plan on getting more variety with a herb kit with basil, dill, cilantro, and parsley seeds. Anyone else have an aerogarden?

Anyone try the topsy-turvey system for tomatoes and vegetables?

My favorite thing to grow in my Aerogarden was basil, too. It was always very hearty!

Cheers to fresh herbs,
Kristen

Yes I have an aerogarden but we kept letting it get out of control with the plants bolting and so many roots so it's boxed for the summer. I do have a topsy turvey and we used it several summers years ago and it did produce and do okay but the problem is that it gets VERY heavy. It's hard to find something to hang it from and for it to get enough sun. The only thing we hung it from that it didn't pull out of was a metal basketball goal that was cemented in the ground. That being said, I produced much more and much better tomatoes just in the ground.

Did you know that aerogarden is a Public Company?

It`s an extremely undervalued Company
