Potted Basil

I just bought a potted plant! It’s a pot of basil.


Since I intend to make dishes that require basil, it makes sense to grow some of my own. The prices of basil can be ridiculous. The other day, I went to the supermarket and was horrified to learn that ONE LITTLE BRANCH costs SGD$2.50!!! Just one branch! There’s not more than 10 leaves on that thing! Can you believe that?

Anyway, I also wanted to test if I have “green-fingers” – the ability to grow and cultivate plants well. Might as well start with this pot of basil. If it works, then I’ll probably start farming chilli, mint leaves, curry leaves, etc…, in my room or somewhere around the house where there’s ample sunlight.
