Growing

My little baby Jade plant that my mom rooted from a broken bit of her big Jade is getting two new little limbs on top. There was just a little bump on top, but it's now resolved itself into to teensy round bits, so it's definitely growing! Yay.

I'm also happy about my herbs, which are finally flourishing: the rosemary has more bright-green, fast-growing new branches than it had all last summer when it was planted outside, so hopefully it will eventually get big and bushy so we can actually use it to cook without taking more than it can spare. The basil is also finally growing, but definitely needs to be moved into a bigger pot, something I keep not getting around to. Maybe this week.

Hopefully this summer we can see the basil I've been told about that grows and grows until you have more than you know what to do with. I would love to have that much basil, because I would know what to do with it: make lots and lots of tomato-basil sandwiches, salads, and pesto!

I hope our house has lots of big, sunny windows and a big, sunny backyard!
