Fresh herbs make a noticeable difference when added to any dish — just try it and see! — but usually, when we buy them, they tend to waste and go bad, because who uses 20 sprigs of thyme at once, right?
In an effort to both reduce waste and save money, the folks at Goodful have created a stunning countertop garden that will serve as both a hot topic and functional kitchen “appliance” of different sorts.
Shop: AeroGarden Harvest Slim Countertop Garden & Gourmet Herbs Seed Kit, $89.99 (Orig. $189.99)
Currently available at Macy’s for $100 off its original price (a total discounted rate of 52 percent off), the Goodful AeroGarden Harvest Slim Countertop Garden comes in two color options — sage and black — and fully equipped with an assortment of seeds to begin your herb-growing journey.
Included in the seed kit are Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, Thai basil and Miracle-Gro plant food.
To ensure that the herbs grow healthily, the countertop greenhouse features LED grow lights and a system that reminds you when it’s time to feed and water the plants.
Boasting a 100 percent recommendation rate by reviewers, this item is a proven customer favorite, with one shopper gushing that it’s “easy and exciting to watch.”
“Very easy to set up and had sprouts within a few days,” the five-star reviewer wrote. “I am looking forward to having fresh herbs and lettuce to enjoy year round.”
Another reviewer pointed out that while the product is “easy and fun” and reduces your carbon footprint, the included light can be overwhelmingly bright and distracting if placed near your sleeping quarters.
“Fortunately this machine has a small footprint that fits almost anywhere,” the shopper wrote. “Aerogarden has excellent customer service. The company quickly shipped replacement pods for those that didn’t sprout. This system makes it super easy to grow herbs.”
Critiquing the brightness of the lights, the five-star reviewer added, “The light is very bright so you need to place the Aerogarden somewhere that it won’t disrupt your sleep.”
This minor detail was not enough to overshadow the gadget’s seemingly productive function, with the same customer stressing, “If you’re on the fence about buying this, go for it.”
