Aerogarden and kitchen scrap regrowing update # 1


It's day 15 for the small Aerogarden, and day 3 for the big one. They are both coming nicely along.


Both of these are from yesterday. The dill doesn't have any true leaves yet, and the Thai basil still hasn't sprouted.



These are from today.


 Here, you can see the parsley finally sprouting.
 




Meanwhile, in the big garden...





 
The lettuces are sprouting, and so is the dill and basil. 
There are no pics of the tomato side, cause nothing is visibly happening there yet.

My celery died because I was too rough when rinsing them, and the dill cuttings did nothing. It turns out dill won't grow from cuttings. 
Luckily, I looked it up and discovered my folly in time to take them out and use them in a giant batch of Tzatziki, so no waste.

 The original basil plant has nice little sets of leaves mid stalk, and teeny, tiny, new leaves on the top set.


Here is a close up of the tiny leaves.


 Meanwhile, the basil cuttings are finally growing roots!


You can kind of see them here.
 

Annnnnd.....
I put my green onion and leek bottoms in water today to regrow.



They've both already got some new growth and it's only been a few hours!



I'll update again in a few days.
