One solution to help solve this issue is the Aero Garden an indoor garden that includes a container where pods, filled with organic matter and seeds, are placed. All you have to do is keep the pods watered and the accompanying LED Grow Light System, lit: "No green thumb required grow in 3 easy steps." The gardens grow hydroponically- meaning only in water: "Plants grow in water 5x faster than in soil."

With these conditions met, you will have a substantial garden growing in no time with abundant herbs, vegetables or flowers in a few days or weeks- a definite plus for the recent requirements for social distancing and less trips to the grocery store.
