growing on my window sill, part 2

Having a garden to potter around in is something that I really miss. When I visit home I always look forward to a day or two in the garden with mum and dad. My sister sometimes calls me Prune because I'm always wandering around the backyard with secateurs in my hand. But for now, it's important to make the most of the window sill! I planted basil seeds one month ago and this is what they look like now. I love their smooth-feeling but grainy-looking little green leaves.

basil has to be my fave - for all the caprese salads i want :) however, i put mine outside and neglected it, i guess, and the slugs ate it :(

the aroma it releases..and the best part that I like about basil, it grows year round (..if you keep it indoors and near some lightsource), have you even made pesto? I never have enough for one batch. my recipe calls for 3 cups of fresh basil.

It looks fantastic! I killed my last herb, but it was rosemary, which I've been told is hard to start from seed. I think I'll try basil next time! ...and then I can ask you for advice. haha!

p.s. shipped your print yesterday AND threw in a little greeting card as a thank you :)
