I tend to call plants "her"...I don't know why but I guess I think of all plants as being ladies. I think I might get it from my mother. About a month ago we had the need for basil. Joe had gone to the grocery store and came home with a whole basil plant saying that it was all they had. We really had the need for only a few leaves so I had no idea what I was going to do with an entire plant. Yesterday I noticed that she was still alive. I do try to water her and place her next to the window to get some light. I might just buy her a cute little pot. She has a few dry edges but it is nothing short of a miracle that she is still alive one month later!
