Summer seems like the perfect time to finally get started on that (indoor) herb garden I've been wanting. I've been using the excuse of not having a patio for too long. Plus, buying basil at the store gets expensive and goes bad quite fast. I purchased my basil plant at Trader Joe's for something like two dollars and some change. What a steal. I couldn't grab that thing fast enough and add it to my cart. Since then it has become something like my baby, or at the very least a well adored pet. (Yes, I do know that I have too much time on my hands.)
I'm hoping the little guy does ok positioned by the window admiring the view of the apartment building next door. Every now and again I take him outside for a little sunshine in the apartment "courtyard" (more like a walkway). If I can't keep this plant alive, which is described on the label as "a hearty plant that you don't need to worry about too much," then I'm pretty much doomed when it comes to taking caring of any other living things. Wish me luck!
peace, love, gardens, and happiness!
