The secret life of plants.
30 Photos in 30 Days (Day 9)
Remember these little lovelies? Well, they are still alive. My lack of a green thumb hasn’t killed them… yet. This weekend, I think I might have over picked the cilantro, so we will see if it pops back. I really love having little herbs to coo at and pluck the dead snails out of. (Lovely image, eh?) It’s also been great because before I even walk out the door to water every morning, my neighbor has already tended to them with his other plants. Talk about low maintenance. He will be getting a little card soon.
I have admittedly not been using these herbs (parsley, basil and cilantro) as much as I should, aside from sprinkling them in salads. When I get back from St. Louis, I’m planning to embark on another 26 Before 26 challenge — going vegetarian for a month. I want to focus on healthy eating and force myself to get in my wonderful kitchen and think a bit outside the box.
But for now, I’m working with an almost empty kitchen, so I kept it simple tonight and make a grilled cheese with basil leaves. It was still delicious. And now I am sipping on some lemonade. A perfect Tuesday evening.
