Aerogarden 3 - Herbs (Currently - Basil, Oregano & Dill - Originally Chives, Basil & Thyme)

Tags: 

On December 19th 2008, I planted Herbs (basil, thyme & chives)

The beginning of their journey is documented here http://www.jessijordan.com/aerogarden/beansherbs.html

The basil is ridiculous! It grows like a weeds and every other day I have to cut it. I have so many mini freezer bags full of basil it is almost scarey!

The thyme is doing ok. I never use it. I do wonder why it doesnt look like the pictures in the AG booklet

The chives... thats another story. The 1st set was disappointing to say the least. And the second set that is in there now (planted Feb 28, 2009) arent doing that much better. I have maybe 6 chives if Im lucky. I dont know what the deal is. I guess there just isnt that many seeds in the pod.

 

March 16, 2009

After changing the water and thorouhly rinsing out the bowl instead of putting the chives back in I decided to grow a new pod of Oregano!

    

I also cut some stems off the basil (to see if it willl grow roots) & have set it & and the chive pod in water in these adorable petite vases.

Jessi, If occasionally you do

Jessi,

If occasionally you do a dump and refill of your AG3 (I did my Mom's SS6 herb at a little over 2 months), it might be worth it to keep the water in a container and add a little bit of it to your herb pots in the plain vases.

BTW, did you get your black AG3 at a retail store in NYC such as BB&B or did you order it online?  I can only find the AG3 in white here at retail store and I prefer black which means long wait time and shipping.

The basil cutting I cut on

The basil cutting I cut on the 16th has roots already. Pretty cool!

This is for my sister who is happy to be the beneficiary of all my extra plants and cuttings

Looks like the extra foil

Looks like the extra foil around the AG3's is even actually helping the sad chives  to grow!
