This post is about my AeroGarden update. As you recall on a previous post, I told you I started this adventure on November 24th. Since then, after numerous times pruning the Thai Basil, it has taken over my AeroGarden and it blocking the other plants for much needed light. I have pruned it again and I will show you how much yield I get. Remember this is a weekly occurrence.
The next thing I do after pruning the plants is to pull off the leaves and stack them. I do this in order to roll them and do what is know at a chiffonade cut. There are several ways to cut your herbs, but this is my favorite. I will provide you with some YouTube videos and websites that I like to use during my harvesting process. Here are my harvested leaves stacked and ready to be rolled and cut. The next picture is the end result of the chiffonade technique that I use. The last pic is the herbs I have harvested since November 24th.
Here is the video that I promised It will teach different techniques for slicing and chopping herbs.
