 I have never really been that successful at keeping green things alive.  Talk to me about little people, yes.  Green things, no.  But perhaps this is changing.  I planted a whole box of basil from seed (with my husband's help...because he's the gardener around here!) earlier this year and it has done beautifully!  I am so excited because it is now starting to self-seed.  A giant step towards being a successful herb gardener. =)  I am thankful for this little box of basil because it is the final piece of my homemade pizza each Thursday night.  Each time my boys walk by the box they take a big sniff and declare, "mmm...smells like pizza!!"

Ah...the small joys of a beginner gardener and wannabe chef. =)
