i made my way up to the most wonderful plant and garden store i've encountered in chicago this past weekend and made attempt number two at creating a small beginning at some plant life for my back porch, which serves as my back yard. still in the process, but it's a start! and these herbs aren't dead or frozen (yet?) so there's the first step!
we'll see how we do with these for a bit, then take it to the next step (hanging baskets? upside down tomatoes?? maybe some woolly pockets? i know, i'm getting crazy..) i can't wait to use that basil!
