The Harvest Elite 360, a round, stainless steel, countertop garden by Aerogarden, consistently produces fresh veggies and herbs five times faster than those planted in soil. Seeds sprout in hydroponic pods created by Aerogarden, and are fed by full-spectrum LED lights that can adjust up to 12 inches high for decent plant growth. Complete with reminders to refill water and add plant food, this abundant, dependable, indoor kitchen garden ships with your choice of a free seed pod kit: gourmet herbs, heirloom salad greens, cascading petunias, or red heirloom cherry tomatoes. But the fun doesn’t stop there: You can purchase plenty of other seeds on their website. Incredibly versatile, Aerogarden also offers “Grow Anything” seed pod kits for growing any seeds you want by simply assembling and labeling your own hydroponic seed pods.

Editor Haley Casey says, “I’m always sad to say goodbye to my container garden come winter, and my Aerogarden is the perfect, compact way to continue growing edibles indoors when the weather gets cold. Also, it never gets old having a continuous source of fresh salad for side dishes and lunches year-round!”

Amend your soil for this spring’s planting with Red Bud Farm’s Organic Worm Castings, certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI). This 3-pound bag of organic matter digested by worms makes for the most natural and organic fertilizer available. Better than compost, worm castings enrich the soil with beneficial bacteria and micronutrients, which not only help your plants thrive, but also protect them from disease during their most vulnerable stages of growth. They even help soil hold more air and water. Make a worm-casting tea by mixing the odorless, ultra-fine pebbles with water, or add about a third of a cup of worm castings around the base of your plants each month to deter pests.
