Grow Your Own With AeroGarden 3

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Household, Misc. Tech,

Aerogarden 3We now have tomatophobia, seriously. Because of all the tainted fruits (yes, tomatoes are fruit,) not being able to be traced (since produce doesn’t generally have RFID tags on them,) we stopped eating them unless they are locally grown. Now you can grow your own with AeroGarden’s latest model. It features a Deluxe-Grow Bulb which they promise will deliver faster germination, more growth and higher amounts of yield. At a size of 9 1/2 x 11 x 20-inches, the AeroGarden 3 comes with 3 seed kits for $99.95.

Recipe: Tomato, Chickpea, and Arugula Salad

Tomato Chickpea salad

I absolutely love salads, so when I come across a new recipe, I have to share it with everyone - we all could use more veggies in our diets. This recipe is quite simple and tasty, as well as pleasing to the eye—because I am a huge believer in that we first eat with our eyes, before our mouths.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces baby arugula
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 15 oz. can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, toasted if desired(my preference)
  • 2 TB red wine vinegar
  • 2 TB olive oil
  • coarse salt and ground pepper to taste

Preparation:
In medium bowl, layer the first 5 ingredients and set aside. In separate tightly lidded container, combine vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper; shake until blended. Pour directly onto salad and toss.

Enjoy a fresh, quick salad.
