Rob and I got our porch together this past weekend and planted our little basil plants.
They grow up so fast. It seemed like yesterday they were itty bitty little sprouts.
We had a lot of little basil plants so we planted them in two containers. In the rectangular container we planted the parsley, three little basil plants and a full grown basil plant that we bought. We want to use basil right away so we bought the full grown one to use until the little guys grow up.
We planted a lot in the big round basket. We may have planted too many in there but if it gets out of control we'll pluck a few out.
We actually planted some a few weeks ago (thinking it was going to be warm) but unfortunately it got really cold and they basically died. So we had to buy new plants. They look much better than the original ones. Within a month they'll fill up the box.
Here's our big rosemary plant:
I love rosemary. I love touching rosemary so my hands smell like it. Ahhh...
Our landlord planted new grass. It's so green and perfect and suburban looking. Much nicer than the lawn last year. Actually, it wasn't much of a lawn last year. It was mostly weeds. After taking this picture I had a flashback of the 5 foot snow drift from the blizzard of the century. Yikes.
I love this building when it's covered in leaves. It's not fully covered yet, but it's close:
It's much better than this.
And here's a picture of our alley. Just because I like it.
