These are the herbs I started the day after Thanksgiving, so it’s taken about two months to grow to this size. Cilantro, dill, thyme, and basil. (There’s also a pot of summer savory at the end that I started last summer.) I started these herbs under lights in the garage where its pretty chilly (about 50F). Now that they’re out on the kitchen window sill it’s warmer for them, but there’s not much sunlight coming in through the window yet. Still, I think they’re looking pretty good.
The basil has grown the slowest and the cilantro the fastest. I suppose that would be predicted since basil is a summer plant and cilantro prefers the cool weather and bolts (goes to seed) in the sun and heat. The cilantro tastes delicious!
I do have 3 or 4 additional pots of each in plain old black plastic pots out in the garage under lights. The basil has refused to grow, the thyme is coming along but it is always a slow growing plant, the dill and cilantro look like they’re ready to garnish some dinners.
Out in the garage trays, I also have a bunch of pots of arugula. That looks like it will make a nice salad soon.
