Strike One

It’s time for an herb update! Yay! I had to throw away all of my herbs just now because they were infected with nasty little white bugs. My father-in-law pointed them out while quickly inspecting them. It’s a shame, but not to worry, we will be getting replacements within a few weeks.

Also he gave me some pointers. Evidently, basil needs a lot more water than I was giving it. Also, it’s probably a good idea to keep them further away from the window than I had been. So my new plants will live in my living room with the rest of the family. And most importantly, I now know to look for tiny yellow eggs on the plants when picking them out in Union Square.

I’ll keep you guys updated as things progress.

    Oh no! Those cute little plants! That is really gross, by the way. They sound like mealybugs… so called because they’re squishy. Isn’t that yicky?
