In hopes that this isn't the most boring post ever, here's my little downtown garden:
The basil is thriving (looks much nicer with the additional basil plants I added yesterday). From left to right, we have cilantro (doing okay, but did not benefit from a hot weekend when we were out of town), mint, basil (with mystery plant), parsley (with mystery plant), tomato (with inexplicable rosemary), and pepper (not thriving).
This is the tomato plant with bonus rosemary. Notice how everything's squished into one small corner. I am the best gardener ever! Knitpastis, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only person with gardening challenges :) Marie, I think the rosemary at least can be explained by my re-use of potting soil. After everything dies in the winter, I just leave the pots out on the porch. Then in spring, I turn under the soil and re-plant. At some point, I did have rosemary growing (maybe 2 years ago?), so that's probably where it came from.
I'm not sure what this is, growing with the parsley growing BETTER than the parsley, actually. Kind of fuzzy leaves. Maybe mint?
Knitting: Still on the baby sweater sleeves. Rain, I have been in denial about the button band and collar I have to do after the sleeves are done and it's seamed :) Ugh. Button bands. Even better, my decision to not adapt this for knitting in the round means loads of fun seaming, too! I imagine I'll get a fair amount done at the game tonight.
Writing: Urgh. Not much.
Me: Hi, my name is Allison, and I am a Harry Potter addict.
Group: Hi, Allison!
Yes, I'm re-reading the Harry Potter books again. I just can't help myself. And...another year till book 7? Augh!
Cooking: I made the Arugula Pesto recipe with spinach and walnuts. It was better with arugula, but still pretty good with spinach.
