AreoGarden - Week Number 3

This is now week 3, and everything except the cilantro is emerging.  The Baby Greens are really taking off and so is the Romaine and Salad Greens.

On Day 14, I put the plant food in and added water.  There was still plenty of water in the reservoir but I filled it back up to the fill line.

It seemed that after I put the plant food in, everything perked up and started growing.

I'm disappointed the Cilantro did not emerge and I'm guessing it will not show up now.

One of the things I was not sure on when I planted the AreoGarden was how much to put in one garden.  I put the three greens stated above plus the three herbs.  The herbs are growing at a much slower rate and so I can see problems with the light being high enough for the salad greens, but too high for the herbs.

I'm not sure if I did things correctly or not as that part of planting the AreoGarden was confusing.  Next time, I'll try not to do that and see if there is any difference.

I did eat the pruned salad greens and they tasted so good!
