Remember how I said I was turning a new leaf? Well, here they are… literally. Ha.
On my balcony, I’m growing little tiny lettuces in a big silver paint can…
… some basil…
… and rosemary, but it’s like Where’s Waldo in that little green pot.
My friend Ted helped me plant the lettuce and the rosemary. The basil was a fully-grown birthday gift from friends.
The basil-gifting friends were very impressed that I was attempting to grow rosemary from seed. Since I didn’t know this was a hard thing to do, this just sparked waves of anxiety, especially since I had had little lettuce sprouts for over 2 weeks and wasn’t seeing anything happening in the rosemary pot. But all the sudden, I noticed that one tiny little piece of rosemary! I whisper encouragement to it every morning so it will grow strong and healthy. It’s definitely the runt of the litter out there.
Now I just have to figure out how I’m going to use that basil.
