I finally have overcome my deep depression after my Aerogarden herbs died while I was out of town last year. After that traumatic event, I needed a little break.
It takes a lot out of you when you are taking care of plants from the very beginning when they were seeds. And then, they unexpectedly die before you even get to try eating or propagating them. 🙁
Life goes on. So, this past weekend, I restarted my Thai Holy Basil and Italian Sweet Basil.
These are the pictures from the first 3 days of growth. Look closely and witness the birth of these two basil plants. It’s like magic.
Day 1 (Holy Basil top, Italian Basil bottom) Notice the tiny little nubs that popped out of the seeds
Day 2 (Holy Basil top, Italian Basil bottom) Baby roots forming!
Day 3 (Holy Basil top, Italian Basil bottom) now with baby leaves!
Can’t wait to eat their leaves after they get bigger!! I don’t know about you but it’s exciting to see how these plants start from seed!!
