For Christmas, I received an amazing present from Chris and am excited to finally share it with all of you! Knowing how much I love my plants and gardening, he gifted me my first hydroponic growing system by AeroGarden. It’s been quite a few weeks and I’ve been able to make a few harvests. Surprisingly, the herbs that were planted became overwhelming to each other quickly and need harvesting and pruning about once a week.
This set-up has a few kinds of herbs which include Tai Basil, Genovese Basil, Mint, Dill, Parsley, and Thyme. Unfortunately, the thyme didn’t sprout. I’m not sure if it was caused by the water initially used or a bad seed pod. Either way, the others have taken off!
This week, some of the mint and basils needed to be hard pruned so I was able to hang those to dry along with the dill. The loose basil leaves I froze in olive oil to be used in some creative cooking experiments (don’t get too excited, cooking makes me nervous!). The mint I froze in water to be used with things such as green tea.
After pruning back, it was easy to see how much the plants had grown in a week. Nothing is better than fresh herbs and flowers around to make my heart smile!
I highly recommend this product and am in no way affiliated with the company that produces it. I love it so much, I just wanted to share!
