Wormy the Water Sensor
He 'knows' when a plant needs to be watered. He turns dark brown then screams, "WATER ME!" Just kidding about the screaming. I don't really need a little worm to tell when to water because I know when to water but he was so cute I had to buy him when I saw him at Home Depot. Hi Wormy!
This is our big basil bush that almost didn't survive the cold days of spring:
Now it's huge and full of delicious basil leaves. This next picture is one of two basket that hang off the side of our porch. This one has oregano and rosemary, both of which are thriving.
Oregano and Rosemary
The next picture is parsley, not that you can even tell. We planted it around Easter and this is what it looks like now:
I can't figure out what went wrong. We kept it in our front window the first couple months so it would get a lot of sun. But I guess it wasn't enough. Then there's the mint. It's growing like crazy-as mint usually does-but it's growing like a vine:
We've successfully grown mint in big pots before but never in a hanging basket. maybe that's why it's growing like a vine? Either way, the mint taste great in a mojito.
