After a long, miserable winter, we’ve finally gotten some pleasant weather lately. Last weekend, we took full advantage by spreading mulch and performing some other much-needed maintenance around the yard.
If we manage to find some time this weekend, we’ll likely get our garden in order. Although a few plants did miraculously survive the winter, for the most part, it’s just a large mass of weeds right now.
But the cold weather didn’t completely stop the Cutter household from growing plants over the winter. That’s because Mrs. Cutter is the proud owner of one of these babies:
It’s the MiracleGro AeroGarden! It’s an indoor grow station used for growing small plants like basil, mint, and parsley.
Or at least, that’s what it is designed for. I’m willing to bet that many of these units are used for…other purposes. In fact, Mrs. Cutter is probably on some sort of government list simply for having purchased one.
Oh well. If a little additional monitoring from the government is the price we have to pay for having homegrown basil, then so be it.
And if anyone out there does use an AeroGarden (or something similar) for less than legal purposes, how’s that working out for you? (Don’t worry, I can keep a secret!)
