Basil Forever and Other Tidbits...
It is said that Basil is the King of Herbs. It certainly rules around here lately. I have three varieties growing in my Aerogarden. Cinnamon Basil, Lettuce Leaf Basil, and Large Leaf Italian Basil.
In addition to this, I have some Spearmint growing in the Aerogarden as well.

I could have filled this void with yet more basil but I figured I'd try something different in the Aerogarden even if only to break up the monopoly the basils had. The Spearmint grows incredibly fast and easily holds its own against the three Basils. Though I do have to keep the Lettuce Leaf Basil trimmed to keep it from blocking the light.
For anyone curious about the sweater I posted about previously, I am currently working on the sleeves of my blue Flax sweater, Mir Ist Kalt. In this stifling heat, it is not the most fun of tasks but it is worth it to see the stitches getting done round by round as my garment edges closer and closer to completion.

I think that's about it. Good night, all. :)

The AeroGarden was a great investment!
Thanks! I think so too. I've been getting lots of basil and mint off of it since they've been old enough to harvest from. I couldn't even eat all of the basil, so I froze it to save for later recipes.
I've never really paid attention, but I thought basil was basil. I didn't really know there were varieties like cinnamon basil. Now I'm curious :)
