I have this dream of a huge garden. It’s not that we don’t have the space for one. We actually live in a rural area with plenty of land for a garden. No, it’s currently more of a time and energy issue. Once the kids are old enough we will have a large garden, but for now it will remain a dream. We visit a local farmer’s market in the summer for our fresh vegetables and herbs since we do not grow our own. There is nothing like a meal made with fresh ingredients.
I have a recipe for Cilantro Chicken and Spinach Tacos that I’ve been wanting to try for months. It’s a mouthwatering combination of cilantro, tomatoes, and chicken with a healthy twist of spinach in leiu of traditional lettuce. I’ve held off on making it because a recipe this delicious deserves fresh ingredients. Ideally, I would like to use my own fresh veggies and cilantro, but until now our lack of a garden has been an obstacle for this. Not now, though! Miracle-Gro now offers Gro-ables, a pre-packaged seed pod.
These seed pods are more than just cute. They make it easy to grow your own herbs and vegetables from seed. They are simple enough for non-gardeners or kids, and the seed pods can be grown indoors for those without space for an outdoor garden. The Gro-ables also enable consumers to try a new veggie or herb without the commitment of the entire gardening experience. This takes the guesswork out of gardening and allows those like me who want to add fresh ingredients to their meals without the overwhelming task of maintaining a garden.
At just $1.29 – $1.49 per seed pod, anyone can grow their own little indoor garden. I am currently growng the Spinach seed pod, the Cilantro seed pod, and the Tomato seed pod.
Be sure to check back with me in a month or two to see how my little “garden” is growing. I promise to share pictures and the instructions for that yummy Cilantro Chicken and Spinach Taco recipe.
What seed pod would you like to try most?
I dream of the day I can have a garden. I tried having one last year when we had space. But on our side of the old duplex we didn’t have any outdoor water source. It was southern France, and there was no shade. So, most of everything was burnt to a crisp. Now I live in China, so space is limited. I do have mint though:) It’s my little plant baby. This looks like a nifty product.
I am excited to try it!

What a fantastic idea!! We LOVE cilantro and use it all the time. We grow most herbs in our patio garden and it’s time to plant some new ones for Spring so I will have to check these out!

What an awesome concept! I would totally love to give the Cilantro a try! Even with my black thumb;)
I have a black thumb, too. I’ll let you know if these are an answer to my gardening woes!
This is soooo cool! I would love to try the cilantro pod! (:
These are very cool! I would love to try out the tomato one and see if I could get more than two tomatoes this year! 🙂
Oh I LOVE these gro-ables, Melanie! I can’t wait to try them!

Please let me know how these end up working; I have a black thumb instead of a green one, but I love fresh herbs!

We love cilantro, I’d want grape tomatoes, spinach, cilantro and little peppers. Basically anything to make fresh salsa!

How do I not know about these seed pods? I love cilantro and use it in everything. I do have a raised bed garden in a local community garden but would love to try these in my postage stamp back yard!
Good for you knowing that these are currently not the years for a big garden 🙂 And oh my goodness- I am seriously looking for these things now! I love the idea of a garden too, but don’t have the space. I would LOVE to grow my own tomatoes!
I’d be trying the tomato seed pod. I grew them last year, but they didn’t turn out all that wonderfully. Maybe a new system is in order?
I’ll let you know how they turn out!
I love this idea. Now that we’re doing a TON more fresh cooking, starting some cilantro would be really fun!
