Natural Process

How it’s possible to transition from beer drinking/touring to gardening, I’m not sure.

So let’s all take a moment to watch some paint dry, shall we?

The Genovese and Lettuce Leaf Basils continue to flourish.

They promise to Perform and cover themselves in glory in the same way that last year’s Basil was a spectacular.

On the other side of the coin, the Purple Basil seems deadly uninterested in doing anything that would bear a resemblance to productivity.

Where the other Basils sport four leaves, it only shows-off two.

Like, how hard is it to grow when you’re a plant?  I mean, honestly.  I give it water, I give it sunlight and then it’s supposed to uphold its end of the bargain and give growing a shot.  You know, since it’s a natural biological process.

In the interim, I don’t even know how to deal with the sage.  Like, what does the end-result of sage even look like?

Are you not as perplexed as I am?  Because I do not get where this is going.

After doing a bit of Googling I’m mildly alarmed, because it looks like it might flower ferociously OR grow into a bush.

Like last year’s rainforest-style tomato debacle, I am NOT equipped to handle bush-growing.

Pray for me, kittens.

Have you ever planted anything, not knowing what the end result will turn out like?

What is your favorite use of Basil?  Margherita Pizza? Caprese Salad?  Bruschetta?  Pesto?  We may as well get the idea mill turning now, since obviously I’m going to need to address the issue at some point.
