Check out those huge basil leaves! The plants grew so tall I had to raise the lamp arm so they wouldn't burn. The large basil leaves on top were actually blocking the light from the lower leaves so today I was forced to harvest my first herbs from the Aerogarden that I started on December 14. I took several large basil leaves and cut them into a nice little chiffonade which I then added to scrambled eggs, along with some diced tomato and shredded Parmesan cheese. Simple, delicious and, best of all, homegrown.
Next up: mushrooms with homegrown thyme.
