Isaac and Gideon has a lot of fun setting up this aeroponic gardening kit. It was a gift from Grandma Doris, and it was so easy to assemble that the boys were able to do it without my help! No dirt needed, and the lights and water sensors are all pre-programmed to tell us what to do. Then they got the seeds planted, and now we just sit back and wait. In a few weeks, we will have salad greens and herbs, fresh as can be, right on our kitchen counter. Neat tie-in to Isaac's plant unit we just finished up for science! (We also planted some seeds the traditional way to compare.) We love science!
