Aero Garden in your kitchen

AeroGrow's AeroGarden garden kit, it's easy to cultivate lettuce, cherry tomatoes, herbs, chili peppers, edible flowers, and more in an energy-efficient, organic-based environment right in the kitchen. This compact chef's tool includes everything the indoor farmer needs: a preseeded bio-dome grow pod, two daylight-spectrum bulbs, nutrients, and a helpful tending and harvesting guide complete with recipes. Just follow the simple instructions to set up, and the growing process starts immediately, with germination occurring within 24 hours and a mature plant that is ready five times faster than if grown in soil. The AeroGarden system monitors itself to create ideal growing conditions for each plant and alerts you when it's time to add more water and nutrients. No dirt or natural light is needed, so even low-light spaces are suitable. Plug kits for many kinds of plants are available from AeroGrow.

AeroGarden Pro 100 with Gourmet Herb Seed Kit

Growing vegetables in the house and look good in your kitchen. However, when you consider the cost of the unit, replacement bulbs, seed packs and operating expenses, it isn't necessarily economical compared to say organically grown lettuce. For herbs, I think it's great because you can freeze them and there is nothing quite like fresh herbs for cooking purposes.
