5 indoor garden sets that will make you forget about the NJ cold

Winter is always a fun time to find new indoor activities. Especially those that help you forget that it’s freezing out.

It is always difficult for my family to go from picking fresh herbs and vegetables from the garden all summer to then having to buy them all winter long. We all get really pampered by the fresh, nutritious things we harvest all summer.

I recently started my hunt for an indoor garden, and while it’s not as fun as the daily walk to the backyard, it’s fun to add a little greenery to the inside of my house. Plus, having flowering indoor herbs and vegetables allows you to bring a little summer into your home.

If you want to start an indoor garden, there are many ways to do it. Here are 5 of the best sets on the market to get you started:

    If you love to embrace winter flavors, you will enjoy this set. It comes with sage, cayenne, peppermint, thyme and lemon basil. If I had this set, I would make peppermint mocha all day long.

    Aero Garden

    Many mock Aero Garden, but everyone I know who has it loves it. It is an indoor fresh herb and vegetable garden and you can grow indoors all year round. It is quite compact so you can only grow up to 6 plants at a time and up to 12 inches tall, but what I love about it is that it is hydroponic – your plants grow in water, not in soil, so there is no rod. It’s also pretty foolproof with a control panel that tells you when to add water, reminds you when to add plant food (included), and automatically turns on and off the light for your hydroponics cultivation system.

    The courtyard

    This is Rolls-Royce of indoor planters. And it works outside, too. But you can spend anywhere from $ 499- $ 999 on it. It is an absolutely fantastic pot-like tub that can grow plants from 12-36 inches tall and uses 95% less water than traditional gardening. The self-watering, self-fertilizing Farmstand makes it easy to grow your own food at home. Once you have selected your Farmstand you want, the company will help you figure out what to grow and how. And there is plenty to choose from: over 200 varieties of sprouted seedlings, so you can grow kale and lettuce varieties for your favorite herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant and more.
