The basil plant that I've been keeping alive (there have been some resuscitations) in the past three years has begun to flower. According to what I've read online, once the flower dries up I'll find seed the cycle begins again.

The greenthumb in me is ecstatic!! This means that my sad-looking basil plant will be reproduced and hopefully when I plant these seeds this time around, I'll have a healthier (much healthier) basil plant.

Did I mention that fresh basil on pasta is wickedly awesome??? I'm looking forward to that day.

We are planning to start a small vegetable garden in our backyard this summer. We will keep you updated on its progress. Right now, we have the seeds of the veggies that we plan to grow.
