‘Let’s Patch’ Self Watering Herb Planter

Today, our very own ‘Let’s Patch‘ herb planter arrived at our doorstep. Yay!

Being a supporter of urban agriculture, Vancouver-based inventor Kent Houston is going to launch his project later this week on Kickerstarter.com and asked us for our opinion.

For people like me that don’t have a green thumb, the planter’s concept sounds pretty promising: “Let’s Patch is an easy, worry–free method of growing fresh herbs and veggies. Perfect for city dwellers it’s ideal for any space.”

Accordingly, ‘Let’s Patch’ is going to revolutionize indoor gardening. “Growing your food is no longer a thing of the past – it’s the future. To help make our future more sustainable, we’ve designed a product that let’s people grow their own food easily by ‘just adding water.'”

Grow herbs and leafy greens all year around. Just fill up the water reservoir and the plant takes exactly what it needs when it needs it.

Based on ease, speed, taste and personal preference, the patch’s creators came up with the following top five herbs to grow in it:

  1. Cilantro
  2. Basil
  3. Mint
  4. Parsley
  5. Chives

The assembly was pretty straight forward and totally self-explaining …now the following weeks will have to show how successful a novice urban gardener like me really can be ;)
