More herbs and another tip from the AeroGarden Ultra: Day 7

I admit, I'm starting to get a little like William Shatner in the Twilight Zone episode "Nick of Time" as far as reading the tips on the Aerogarden. You know, that's the episode where he and his wife are mesmerized by a fortune teller machine. I admit, just like him, I walk by the AeroGarden every day and get excited when a new tip appears.

Day 7 of the Aerogarden has passed and here's the tip du jour:

Um...okay, but the tip is a little late...I'm happy to say that all of the herbs are now present and accounted for. I'm still waiting for the little plants to pass through the hole in the seed pod before taking off the plastic domes for the remaining three herbs.

The tip did get one thing right: the basil is usually the first to come up--Julie actually left a comment on a previous post saying that hers actually sprouted within hours!

The little herb plants are starting to show their distinctive shapes: the sage is getting bumpy leaves, the basil is showing tiny heart-shaped leaves, and so on.

More soon!
