That's a picture of the green plastic tray with herb plants in it that I took a couple of days ago. They're flourishing on the whole, especially the basil which is the largest plant in the picture. Now the next picture is of a basil plant (same cultivar) that was transferred to a pot with potting soil. The potting soil was a Miracle Grow related product purchased at a local store. It advertised how healthy it was for plants.

It's June 18th and I'm rather annoyed by the progress I've made. I decided to go with pots this year and found some really cool pots. I started a whole bunch of herbs and tomato plants in little peat pots whatever they're called. They work well for seeds. After they got started I watered them, at first just with water, but then with dilute hydroponic nutrient, and more recently with standard strength nutrient. As usual the plants flourished in the peat pots. When I'm planning on doing straight hydroponics I usually use rockwool cubes, but since I was planning to pot these plants anyway I just did the peat pots.
