Basil anyone??

This spring I planted basil, mint, parsley and thyme in planters in my back yard. Sadly, I did not put rocks in the bottom of the planters, and it rained, and rained and rained this spring. So...all that remains is the basil. Thankfully that had a bumper crop! It is now at the end of it's prime however, so I pulled it all today and left it to dry in the house. It smells wonderful, Tabby was curious about what it is all about, and I think I discovered that I really like the way the big bunch of bright greenery looks in the house, especially against most of my white. Maybe I need some indoor plants for the kitchen?? :)

  1. i don't know what i'm more impressed with- the ingenius idea of using your laundry dryer for the plants, or the way your cat is restraining himself and not attacking all those dangly green things! ha ha!
