Growing vegetables at home just got easier thanks to OGarden. This self-watering indoor garden allows you to grow up to 90 vegetables, fruits, and herbs simultaneously. Fully automatic, you simply plugin, plant, and watch your garden grow. OGarden was launched in 2016 with a successful Kickstarter campaign and is back with the new and improved OGarden Smart, which is available for pre-order through Kickstarter.

Founders Pierre Nibart and Pierre-Etienne Bourget created OGarden to make a positive impact on the planet while giving people more autonomy in their efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The upgraded OGarden Smart builds upon the success of their previous model, but includes self-watering capabilities that mean you only have to add water to the tank once a week. Low consumption LEDs simulate light without wreaking havoc on your electric bill and OGarden Smart's unique design maximizes the number of plants you can grow without taking up too much space.

There are 60 slots for plants in the rotating upper barrel and room to store 30 plants below, with OGarden suggesting a 30 plant rotation for year-round vegetables. You can purchase seeds directly from OGarden, which offers a wide variety of plants like peppermint, green onion, strawberries, cherry tomatoes, kale, and basil. Or, if you want to grow something that's not on the list, you can simply order a bag of virgin earth and plant your own seeds. OGarden estimates that you'll be ready to harvest 30 to 40 days after planting.

With organic vegetables costing a pretty penny, an investment in OGarden means savings long term. OGarden claims it can save you up to 80% on vegetables, making a nice dent in your grocery bill. For instance, they estimate that store-bought non-organic kale costs an average of $2.50, while the same amount grown organically with OGarden is just $0.45.

Another benefit is knowing exactly what's in your food and keeping it free of pesticides. As OGarden's soil is made with organic fertilizer, you can rest easy knowing that you and your family aren't consuming any unwanted substances.

The OGarden Smart was fully funded on Kickstarter in just 6 minutes, and is still available for pre-order. For a pledge of $859 Canadian (about $645), you'll get an OGarden Smart in the color of your choice, as well as 30 seed pods and several different seeds packs. This is a 41% discount off the regular retail price.

The OGarden Smart is a self-watering indoor garden that can grow 90 fruits, vegetables, and herbs at one time.
