Aerogarden Thai Holy Basil and Italian Basil Update Day 35 and 45

My Aerogarden is on fiyahhhh!!!

Meaning it’s doing really well.

We just passed day 45 (above) and I’ve already taken two harvests of the Italian basil.

Aerogarden Thai Holy Basil (tulsi) and Italian Basil Update Day 35 and 45. I finally got to take my first harvest of Italian basil and made pesto with it. Can't wait to make Thai Basil Chicken with this thing!!|

The Thai holy basil was going a bit slow and finally caught up!


Here is how the Thai holy basil and Italian sweet basil looked at day 35


Earlier this week I made pesto with the Italian basil.

I was never really a fan of pesto, but I think it’s because I’ve never been successful making it at home. In the past, I’ve used the pre-grated cheese.

And I know now that that was a factor.

The pesto from this week was killer and easy to make.



I am now officially a fan of basil pesto????

I guess I didn’t know what I was missing.

The premade stuff and what I’ve had in restaurants doesn’t even come close to this.

Have you made your own basil before? If so, what do you put in it?

Here is my recipe – Classic Basil Pesto with Pine Nuts and Cheese

    I’ve always wondered if the aerogardens worked. Now I know. And the one recipe that I completely destroyed and hated was a pesto pasta. Even hearing the word pesto brings to mind a disgusting taste and look. It may have been the ingredients, though. Good to know. I may have to try to make it again.
