It's been just a little over a month since I set up my Aerogarden to grow sweet basil, Thai basil, and cilantro. I'm happy to report that they are all coming along nicely and didn't even flinch when I left them by themselves for two weeks while I visited Hawaii (preview post coming soon!). The cilantro took the longest to start and also to grow. It's been about a month now, and I still feel like I need to wait before harvesting them. Honestly, Bryan would eat those five stalks in one bite.
However, both basil plants are growing phenomenally fast. I have had to harvest both of them at least once already to prevent them from growing straight into the "sun" and getting their leaves singed. It's been nice having access to fresh herbs, even if it's just as a garnish.
I randomly chose a winner from the 124 entries using random.org. The winner of the Giveaway is number 48, Tamara, who said "Chives, Sage and Parsley."
