Aerogarden Snowpeas are falling like dominoes

Bad news about the Aerogarden snowpeas. For no reason, they seem to be dying.

Here's a plant that was thriving less than a week ago. Now it's shriveled up. Two pods have completed died, and I see that three more have dead leaves which are starting at the bottom and moving to the top.
The odd thing is--there has always been plenty of water, the lights have been working just fine, and I've been putting the nutrients in right on schedule. The temperature in the kitchen has always been just fine (in fact, the other Aerogardens are thriving).
So, I have to conclude that it's the seed pods that were at fault. I wrote back to Aerogarden, and I'll let you know what they say.
There's one pea pod that seems to be getting big. Let's see if it can reach full size before the rest of the plant goes.
In the meantime, the Aerogarden Herbs are doing splendidly, and yes, the basil is full grown again. What else is new?

The mesclun is doing well too. And unlike my short-lived romaine lettuce it's still 100% bug free! In the next post, I'll talk about how I made my own salad AND salad dressing with the amazing Aerogarden!
