    Hi Diane, yes, we would like the herb kit if you don't. But you might want to try it, it made lovely herbs and smelled nice. We didn't have much success with the tomato and peppers (salsa kit). The tomatos grew so fast they kept burning the blooms off in the lights and covered up the peppers so they never even grew much. Good luck with yours. The best kit we have used so far is the petunia kit. We had cascades of beautiful petunias all summer and fall. We have petunias growing now. I have some orchids on the same table and I think they like the lights too, even though it is just a little boost to the sunlight they get. Anyway, it's a neat thing and fun, and the company supports it's product. Our pump went out after over a year and they sent us a new one free. Nice way to do business!

    I grow tomatoes, and to be honest they are like weeds! Just tied into a stake, (tho I have tumbling tom which grows in a hanging basket) and a dose of tomato fertilizer each week.Just need lots of water and Bobs your uncle!

    As you can see, these are doing very well. I will have to raise the height of the lights soon so they don't burn...

    This is pretty much the coolest thing I've ever seen. I want you to know, I saw the Aerogarden at a department store, and my husband was goig to buy it for me for xmas, and I said "No no, that thing will never work!". Look how wrong I was!!! I'm totally impressed, it makes me want to go buy one!! Dang!!! (Chewing my foot right now...)

    Nice little forest you got growing there.
    As Becky, I didn't quite see how such a strange looking machine would grow stuff this well. Looking forward to seeing them tomatoes grow.
