Growing your own organic herbs, vegetables, and fruits is a great way to eat healthier and, at the same time, do something good for the environment. Unfortunately, a lot of people assume they can’t grow a garden because they don’t have enough space, time, or know-how. But that’s not actually the case. Or at least, it’s not any more. Thanks to an amazing high tech gadget called the Click & Grow Smart Gardens, these days anyone can grow their own organic produce with the touch of a button, no matter where they live.

Fully Automated Gardening? Yes Please

What exactly is the Smart Garden? Click & Grow calls it the Keurig of plants. And that’s actually a pretty great description.

The Click & Grow Smart Garden is a fully automated gardening system that lets anybody grow herbs, fruits, vegetables, and flowers year round, in any environment, with absolutely no effort or horticultural knowledge. Like a Keurig coffee maker, all you have to do is insert a pod, fill the tank with water, and press the button. Technology takes care of the rest.

Click & Grow has over 50 different pre-seeded 100-percent biodegradable plant pods to choose from, including tomatoes, peppers, arugula, green leaf lettuce, basil, chives, cilantro, petunias, pansies, lavender, and so much more. You can also buy “blank” smart soil pods and use your own seeds to create your own custom plant pods. The possibilities are almost endless.

You don’t have to know anything about gardening to use the Click & Grow Smart Garden. However, if you’d like to learn, the Click & Grow companion app can make you a plant expert. Simply check in with the app daily and it will explain exactly what’s happening during each stage of the growing cycle.

How Does It Work?

The Click & Grow Smart Garden uses advanced horticultural technology specifically designed to speed up growth and maximize yields. This technology includes:

  • Biodome Sprouting: lids cover the seed pods during the initial growing phase, creating a greenhouse effect that induces faster sprouting.
  • Grow Lights: professional grade LED grow lights with enhanced light spectra bring about faster germination. These lights turn on and off automatically to mimic the natural light cycle, making sure plants get the exact amount and type of light they need to thrive.
  • Automatic watering: sensors detect moisture levels and automatically water your plants when needed, with each reservoir tank refill lasting about one month.
  • Smart Soil: instead of regular soil, Smart Garden seed pods use a proprietary nano material created by Click & Grow. This material keeps soil pH balanced, automatically releases nutrients in sync with the plant life cycle, and contains micro oxygen pockets to give plants ample breathing room and nutrients when the smart soil is wet.

All this tech wouldn’t be very appealing if it cost an arm and a leg to run. Luckily, the Click & Grow Smart Garden is incredibly efficient. It uses 95-percent less water than traditional agriculture, while producing faster growing cycles without toxic pesticides or fertilizers. Meanwhile, the Smart Garden’s efficient LED grow lights cost roughly $5 to $15 per year to operate. That’s probably less than you’d spend on gas going back and forth to the nursery to get supplies for a traditional backyard garden.

Of course, not every prospective indoor gardener has the same needs. Some people just want a minimalist countertop unit to grow their favorite herbs. Others want a full-blown indoor farm. That’s why Click & Grow created several different Smart Garden models with variable grow capacities.

Click & Grow Smart Garden 3

As the name suggests, the Smart Garden 3 is capable of growing three plants at a time. Measuring just 12 inches wide and 5 inches deep, with a max height of 19 inches, this model fits almost anywhere. That makes it perfect for anyone with extremely limited space, or who isn’t quite ready for a bigger indoor garden.

At just $99.95, the Smart Garden 3 is the most affordable of Click & Grow’s automated gardening systems. It’s available in four different colors and comes with the companion app as well as a complementary set of three basil plant pods.

Click & Grow Smart Garden 27

For those who live by the motto “go big or go home” there’s the Smart Garden 27. Though, in this case, “big” is a relative term. Consisting of three Smart Garden 9 units plus a stylish pine plant stand, the Smart Garden 27 is capable of growing a whopping 27 plants at a time. However, it barely takes up any room. The entire system has a footprint of 26 inches by 10 inches, and it stands just 47 inches tall. So it’s roughly the size of a small bookcase.

The Smart Garden 27 is certainly a more significant investment than the Smart Garden 3. However, if your household consumes a lot of fresh organic product, it won’t take long for the Smart Garden 27 to start paying for itself. It’s available in three different colors and comes with the companion app as well as a complementary set of nine basil plant pods, nine lettuce plant pods, and nine tomato plant pods.

Good For You AND The Planet

Eating local and organic helps you reduce your carbon footprint and cut back on the amount of harmful chemicals that wind up in our watershed. And that used to be pretty expensive. But thanks to the Click & Grow Smart Garden, we can all grow affordable organic produce right in our own homes with just the touch of a button.

If that sounds good to you, click here to learn more about Click & Grow Smart Gardens, today.

Proud husband-to-be! Duane Chapman revealed fiancée Francie Frane impressed him with her intuitive skills when they went on their first bounty hunt together following their engagement. The WGN America alum reflected on the experience in a sneak peek for an upcoming episode of The Dr. Oz Show 

“I know she’s a hunter. Her and her two sons have hunted bow hunt, so they track, they look for things that the prey leaves behind. And so, she’s kind of a natural,” Duane, 67, said in a teaser clip obtained by People on Friday, September 25.

Not only did she take action, but she “just fit right in” with the team, the TV personality added. “She started getting leads and writing them down, so there’s more than just tracking and hunting.” Duane said she found her niche in “the investigation behind the investigation … and she’s really, really good at that.” 

Dr. Oz shared his own teaser clip from the Monday, September 28, show, revealing Francie helped Duane make big improvements to his lifestyle. “No swearing, fewer cigarettes and down 20 pounds,” the talk show host wrote in his caption, teasing more of what is to come in the bounty hunter’s latest interview. 

Duane and Francie announced their engagement in May after he popped the question during a candlelit dinner at their Colorado home.

The reality star often credits Francie for helping him cope with the death of his late wife Beth Chapman, who passed away in June 2019 following a cancer battle. They had been together nearly 30 years and Beth was only 51 when she died. Francie also lost her spouse to cancer, so they found comfort in each other.

In August, Duane opened up about the severe depression he felt in the wake of his longtime love’s death. “I barely remember the first six months,” the Dogs Most Wanted star told RadioTimes.com. “After that, when everything calms down, and people quit calling you, and flowers quit coming to the door and all of a sudden, you’re alone … that’s when it hit me,” he explained. 

Francie and Duane ultimately found love in each other and he made sure to go the extra mile when he purchased her dazzling diamond ring. 

“Francie’s stunning ring features what appears to be an estimated 1.5 to 2-carat cushion or round brilliant diamond surrounded by a cushion-shaped diamond halo,” Kathryn Money, Brilliant Earth’s Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Retail Expansion, previously speculated in an exclusive statement to In Touch.

Duane and Francie have big wedding plans in store!

Talley lashed out at Wintour in his May memoir, “The Chiffon Trenches,” dubbing her a “colonial dame.”

But Friday, he wrote on Instagram: “Proud to see very, very beautiful, stunningly elegant [Lizzo] on Vogue’s current cover.” He added, “Progress is advancing at full supersonic Concorde speed. Dame Anna Wintour made a promise and she kept her word. Her public apology was right on.”

But, he said, “in the years I worked there, under her reign, this cover would have never been published, even if it were a trial.”

He claimed that it would have been killed by the advertising side of the company, hinting that they would have thought it would be off-putting to Vogue readers.

This breezy overwhelming romance seasoned off with its finale on Aug 9, 2020, with the lead characters acknowledging their reciprocation of feelings for each other.

Seo Ye-Ji’s Ko Moon Young was seen publishing a book digressing from her usual dismayed themed narratives and Oh Jung -she’s  Moon Sang Tae took a  dreamy carefree road trip. Assessing how most of the Korean series draws the closing line after one season, this too is treated for such an evaluation.

However, looking at how Ko Moon -young when visited her mother and shared a schmooze giving her a sense of closure might have floored a way for its second season.

Even though no news has announced the series being poised to make S2, a scene that strongly disaffirms its termination after the 1st season was when the trio converged on the same stage was actually the Moon brothers going their separate ways.

Actor Park kyu -Yung playing ‘Nam Ju -el ‘ articulated his working experience with the lead actor Kim Soo-Hyun in an interview’  His energy was truly great. I’ve seen his drama fans even before I debuted and I was worried and nervous about how our teamwork would be. I asked him a lot of things I was curious about and he made working together very comfortably,so I’m thankful’.

The main factor debarring the official shoot of the likely to happen renewal is the global pandemic, incurring an irrevocable loss of the entertainment industry drawing most of its projects a stand. So the K-drama fans might have to wait longer for the arrival of the next season.
