AeroGardening in the Mountains

Well, we finally set up the AeroGarden I bought Stack for Christmas. Today is Day 10 and all seven plants have sprouted. I only photographed six because the one in the front center is not doing much yet.

We're especially excited about the basil, as we love to make Caprice salads, and if I have enough I'll even try to make some pesto!

Sadly, I'm sensitive to the light coming from the uber bright compact fluorescent bulbs in the unit. I spent a few minutes looking at the plants on Monday and came away with a very red, painful burn-like reaction on both arms. It didn't show up very well in the pictures, this is more like what it looked by the 3rd day. Thank goodness for aloe! We've since moved the unit into the shop downstairs (which is heated) so I won't get exposed so much.
