I had finally started my own herb garden. It’s such a simple thing to do yet I’ve been putting it on hold. I think I was probably worried that I might be unable to take care of it in the future.

Last week, I bought a small pot of sweet basil home as an ‘official start’ to my herb garden collection.

I will shower this aromatic herb with TLC so that it’ll flourish happily. Then, I will get to harvest its leaves for cooking to share with my loved ones. That’s such a happy and harmonious relationship isn’t it?

 Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum) re-potted on 19-Sep-2012

Currently, I am looking at producing home-made organic compost, using tea bags, vegetable and fruit scraps. Should my blood counts remain stable tomorrow, I will start the composting this week.

I am also looking at expanding my garden collection:

  • rosemary
  • thyme
  • pandan

Will accept any kind donation of healthy plants. :)
