Usually when I try to grow herbs, they come to a bad end.
a) Too much sun, so they scorch on the first hot, sunny day. Or,
b) The pots tip over, blocking the plant from the sprinklers, and they dehydrate. Or,
c) They rot from over-watering. Or,
d) They go to seed before I can harvest so much as a leaf.
Like the Texas Rangers baseball team, though, I “Never Ever Give Up.” Actually, the Rangers’ current 39-38 record is better than my herb garden record, but who’s counting?
And persistence pays off. I’m here to report that I’ve had a potted basil plant for, like, FOUR WEEKS. And it’s still alive! Yesterday, I used some of the leaves on a couple of tortilla pizzas for lunch. Yummmmm……
And now, to pick a few cherry tomatoes before they split from the heat. This is almost like having a green thumb!
