Announcing stretch goals
We're blown away by the response we've gotten from our users and the Kickstarter community. While we didn't come to Kickstarter to fail, reaching our funding goal in just 2 days and doubling it in less than 5 days is better than anyone of us expected. We're humbled, happy and are already working hard to deliver Smart Herb Gardens in September.
More backers means bigger quantities and less per unit cost. We'd like to share these gains with our Kickstarter backers.
$200,000 - every backer gets an additional Mini Tomato cartridge. This is one our most popular plants today and it grows beautiful tasty fruit over a period of 3-6 weeks.
$300,000 - every backer gets an additional Salad Rocket cartridge (in addition to the Mini Tomato). Our tests are still underway with Salad Rocket but the first results are promising and this will likely be a hit in kitchens around the world.
$450,000 - every backer gets an additional Chili Pepper cartridge (in addition to Mini Tomato and Salad Rocket). Chili pepper is a best seller and many people have asked for it here on Kickstarter too. Let's spice up this project!
Please note that the retail Smart Herb Garden will still come with basil, thyme and lemon balm. These are just additional plant cartridges we want to share with our wonderful Kickstarter backers at and above the EARLY BIRD level. The value of these refills is $5-15 each.
Also, due to popular demand we're increasing the amount of Kickstarter Special Edition herb gardens to 500. If you've backed us at the 2-year subscription level just to get the black Special Edition, you're welcome to reduce your pledge. (That said, the 2-year refill subscription is rather neat).
Please note we're not very far from the 200,000 dollar level, so please continue to help us spread the word!
