Update: My New Leaf

26 Apr

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…

Aren't you the cutest little lettuces I've ever seen! Yes you are!

… some basil

Basil

… and rosemary, but it’s like Where’s Waldo in that little green pot.

I call it Rosemary's Baby.

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.

    Little tiny lettuces are looking good. I’ve been tweeting when stuff sprouts, and Ross has been mocking me about it. My rosemary had a slightly better germination rate than yours, but only just. See you all soon.
