Aerogarden: Week 10

Last week, I made a quick and easy naan pizza and even had the opportunity to use some of the basil that has been growing like a weed from the Aerogarden. This week, I haven’t had a chance to really cook at all (especially since it’s so easy to just walk to Whole Foods instead of actually cooking when I get home from work) but I do have plans to use the herbs…one of these days. I added nutrients earlier in the week and I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this already, but I’ve changed the time the light turns on (so it’s not on when I’m sleeping because it is pretty darn bright). I also followed the instructions to lower the lights and trim all of the herbs so they wouldn’t be burnt and the herbs that were struggling before are all doing a lot better. This week’s update:


As you can see, the “mint” is growing out of control. I still haven’t placed the smell, but I rubbed a leaf or two between my fingers the other day and did not think it smelled like mint at all:


Some of the leaves (on the upper left hand corner) look like mint leaves, but the majority of the leaves aren’t as wrinkly as mint leaves should be.

The thyme still hasn’t been used, but is growing to the point that I have to trim it because it’s one big herb ball:


The chives have grown a lot since lowering the lamp:


So has the oregano:


The dill has surprisingly done a lot better since the lamp was lowered:


And the basil is already ready for another trim:


Check back next week for another installment (and cross your fingers that I’ll actually use one of these herbs!!)
