Our community garden opens on May 1st, and we have a 10x10' plot to grow salad in. The other day I picked up a wonderfully fragrant lime basil. I would plant it in my garden for the summer, then I would pot it and try to keep it alive in the house next winter.
The little basil was a bit limp and appeared as though it was possibly root-bound already, so I thought I would do it a good deed. I re-potted it last night... and left it outside for some fresh air.
The girls are shaking their heads and laughing at me, asserting that I am all thumbs where growing things are concerned. (And not GREEN thumbs, mind you.)
I hope this isn't a sign of things to come...
Although the fig tree shall not blossom,
neither shall fruit be in the vines;
the labour of the olive shall fail,
and the fields shall yield no meat;
the flock shall be cut off from the fold,
and there shall be no herd in the stalls:
Yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.
