April 1, 2006 (Day8)
We took the domes off the pods of the AeroGarden today. All of them have multiple plants poking through. The growth actually appears to be accelerating!
April 3, 2006 (Day10)
Every pod now appear fully established. New leaves are emerging from the center hole every couple of hours. We have given up on trying to string together a movie from the indiviual pics. We will set up a time-lapse web cam for the next AeroGarden.
April 4, 2006 (Day11)
All of the plants have reached the edge of their pods. This is definitely the quickest we have ever seen things grow. The amazing part of all this is the ZERO amount of work required from us after the initial setup.
April 5, 2006 (Day12)
Not sure why...but the two pods on the rear edge of the unit are growing the quickest. We'll see if things even up some over time. The leaves also seem to be growing into the middle. That is expected since the light is brighter in the center.
April 6, 2006 (Day13)
We managed to get a shot from almost the exact position on two different days. If you look carefully and compare the upper left image from today to the image from Day12, you will see the amount of growth in one day. We checked the water level today. It has been almost two weeks and the water has gone down some. Since there is pump circulating water to all the pods, this unit can probably go for another week before we have to do any kind of maintenance.
April 7, 2006 (Day14)
Two weeks have passed since we flipped the switch and started the AeroGarden. The progress has exceeded our expectations! The RainyDayKitchen folks have started naming the individual pods. I hope it won't be an issue come harvest time! I think there is even a pool going as to which pod will grow the fastest.
