Let's take a garden tour. It's super-short I promise.
This is my garden.
It has 3.75 plants and 4 billion weeds. Down from 6 billion before I weeded a corner on Saturday.
I successfully grow chives and mint:
I sort of grow thyme.
What you don't see it?
I mark it with a stick, otherwise I'd never find it. It's not exactly thriving.
And I would love to grow basil - unfortunately this is my latest attempt:
It sort of looks like a despairing housewife. If it were human I suspect it would attempt to overdose on Valium and Chardonnay.
No will to live at all.
Gardening is one of those things I know just enough about to attempt - but not really enough to be successful, which is all right, because I certainly don't have time to keep up with a full garden. And the 90 degree days are just around the corner, which really ups the challenge.
Easter Chocolate of the Day: "Nugget" - I don't really know what that means, but it was caramelly-delicious.
Can you help me save my basil?
