“I have one of these and it’s super simple to use, even if you don’t have a green thumb. Just drop the included plant pods, fill it with water, plug it in, and let it get down to business. It only took a few weeks for my lettuce and basil to be harvestable and now, after a couple months of patience, my tomatoes are starting to bloom. I love it because a) it makes me feel like a successful gardener b) thanks to the reservoir, my plants won’t die if I forget to water them for weeks, and c) now I have fresh herbs at my disposal at all times.” —Alice Prendergast
