My Crops are Growing Well

Remember the post I made about the Aero Garden Lori gave me for Christmas? I planted the seed pods on December 27th. This is what my garden looked like on January 8th.


Here's what it looks like today, about a month later. From left to right: mint, parsley, basil, purple basil, dill, chives and thyme.


Right now the dill is the tallest at 5 1/2 inches. The chives and basil were taller, but I trimmed them back a few days ago so they didn't hit the light. I wanted to let the other herbs catch up a little. Now I have to find some recipes I like so I can use them.

I hope y'all have a great weekend!

...not only are you & lori happy now, i see you two as the 'farmer couple' in that picture where the old man's leaning on a pitchfork....

Wow so I am soooo wanting that garden kit now! I love cooking with those herbs. Chicken cacciatore would be awesome or roast lamb with all the sides.
I think I have the drunk munchies.
I LOL'ed about the farmer comment cept y'all wouldn't have a pitchfork....more like barrels of gin & tonic!

*kisses to you both*

Please do tell how purple basil tastes different than the regular... if it does. ;) I've never heard of it!!

very cool. where's a good place to buy one online? i see them on amazon and ebay. looks like you can also get them direct on aerogarden.com. any advantage to buying them one place or another?

Anon - I have no idea where the least expensive place to buy it is, but I'll bet the Aero Garden web site isn't one of them. I sure they have to sell it for list price so not to compete with retail outlets that agreed to sell them.

Hey! I'll met you a bet!

You chose what we have to do. If the Giants win, I have to do it. If the Pats win, you have to do it.

Come by and tell me what it would be. No point spread. Just flat out win.

BTExpress said...

Katie - Bring it on! Anything you want, anything! Well, as long as it's naughty. ;-)

Hey Tony:-)
Sorry your having trouble seeing my blog. It seems if folks use foxfire they can't see the blog. I don't know why either. I had foxfire but went back to windows I.E. due to that very problem *UGH*..
So do you like the hydro garden? I want one of these. I love fresh herbs to cook with:-).
