A few months ago (Day 158 of project365), I told you all that I was starting a garden. Well, my basil seeds epic-failed for some reason. So, a few Saturdays ago, I broke down and bought basil at the Saturday Market. As soon as I got home, it looked like it had died. Yes, the cut plant looked dead (or wilted anyway). As a last hope, I stuck the bunch in a jar of water in a windowsill. Somehow, basil (as a species) has forgiven me for whatever I did to offend it, and this basil started to grow roots! I’m so, so excited! This is how I’m growing plants from now on. It’s also just another reason to love Saturday Market.
