It’s been 2 months since I start my Aerogarden project! I haven’t seen too much progress this week, but luckily, a reader told me to lower my lights because it might be hindering the growth of my smaller plants after last week’s post. I cut off the majority of the basil to lower the lamp:


The thyme is definitely getting messy with the mint, but the thyme actually smells like thyme, which is more than I can say about the mint (sad face). The thyme looks like a big heaping mess, but once I figure out how I’m going to use it, I’m going to trim it down a bit:


The mint is growing all over the place (almost like ivy) but I haven’t tasted it since the previous week because it didn’t taste like mint last week and I’m still a little wary to try it again:

And after I took the commenters advice about lowering the lamp, all of my stragglers have been doing a lot better. Here are the chives:


The oregano:


And the surprising underdog, the dill:


I think by Thanksgiving, I’ll definitely be able to use these herbs. It sounds like a long time away, but having fresh herbs in the middle of November is pretty awesome!
