The herbs are still growing strong, lost the dill and the mint, but the basils more than made up for it, still have oregano and thyme that are just now starting to grow stronger since a few are 'done'. This is month 5! Have been drying the herbs in a brown paper bag in the fridge, takes a couple of weeks but the herbs stay green and dry wonderfully! I break them up in a garlic buster and put them in herb jars to store. My kitchen always smells amazing, especially when I'm trimming herbs! It is so fun to watch the herbs growing. Can't say enough great things about this product, sits right on our kitchen counter, would recommend to anyone wanting fresh herbs. We have almost no light in our kitchen, this has the built in lights, blinks when it is time to add nutrients, we add water every other day now that the herbs are bigger. I am an empty nester who gets a bit blue in winter with lack of sun, this gives me babes to get excited about and so much light, definite blues buster!! The babies are tooooo cute!! Me and the hubby find ourselves just staring at it. I want to do strawberries next!!
