I ain't no gardener but...



I've brought home the first plant of my "grow own herbs" project. No prizes for guessing this one. Holy Basil or Tulsi, grown in almost every Hindu household, was the easiest to find and buy. It's also one herb I'm always borrowing from my neighbour, so this one makes it easier for me to make my basil tea.

Watch out for next one...I'm still debating between a big pot of mint and something a little bit more exotic.
