Aerogarden: Week 11

Funny story: last week, I didn’t post an Aerogarden update on Tuesday. I didn’t think anyone would mind, but someone actually twittered and asked about the post! I was REALLY flattered that someone would actually REMEMBER that Tuesday was Aerogarden day! I was thinking about phasing out the Aerogarden updates (especially because I haven’t really been using the herbs yet), but I’ll stick to Tuesday posts until I hear otherwise from you guys. Onto the update!

As I mentioned in last week’s post, lowing the lamp makes a huge difference for the stragglers – just look at the left side of the picture:


Notice how the smaller plants have grown a lot since last week?! The one that surprised me the most was oregano:


The leaves are starting to look larger and it looks like it’s almost time to use them!

The dill is also doing a lot better since the lamp was raised:


And the chives have almost hit the lamp, although I wish there were more so I could use them in a recipe:


The thyme has been getting a little crazy, but I used a bunch in a recipe (I’ll post about that tomorrow):


And I just plucked a bunch of basil before taking this picture (I’ll post the recipe tomorrow as well):


Finally, I’m not quite sure what I should do with this mint:


Because it 1. doesn’t taste like mint and 2. I’m not sure if it’s edible or not. Any suggestions? Maybe I could use it as an air freshener!

If your mint has fragrance, you can still use it to cook, brew tea or make mint chocolate. If you are not sure, use it as air freshener. It chases mice away.
