Basement Bar Accessories: Herbal Assault Part 1

OK folks, I’m going to take the risk of starting a series of posts that will stretch out over a series of weeks before it goes anywhere. I’ve always avoided multi-part posts because, well, I always assume I’ll wake up one day and start forgetting to blog.

I just went through a Winter of not enough herbs in my bar, especially mint. Even though it is Spring now, and my unkillable mint is returning to entirely too many parts of my garden, I’m going to blog the prgress of my new Basement Bar essential. I stole my wife’s AeroGarden and set it up as a now permanent fixture at the end of the Pegu Lounge.
I planted lemongrass, basil, and two kinds of mint. At each stage of it’s progress, I post again until I’m getting lots of delicious fresh herbs for my drinks and you have to start suffering through posts about Basiljitos and endless mint juleps.
