When I was laid off last year due to the pandemic, I had decided to start a garden.
I quickly found out that many other people had this idea because seeds and plants were hard to come by.
I had to get creative in getting plants for my garden.
I noticed my grocery store had herb plants in the produce section.
So I bought basil, sage, oregano and spearmint plants.
With the basil, I took cuttings and placed them in a glass of water until they rooted, then planted them in pots for new plants, eventually transplanting to the garden.
I also did it with the sage and oregano, but sage and oregano are perennials while basil is an annual.
Once basil flowers, it will slowly die off (it can self-seed but that’s another topic).
So that is why I’m focusing on basil for this post.

Hope this tip is helpful to you!
Here are a few of the products available with my art printed on them (by clicking an item you like, it will take you to the page where it’s available). They’d make great gifts to yourself or someone you love and would help support my dream of becoming a full-time writer and artist. Any purchase would be SO appreciated, but if you don’t want to or can’t, that’s totally fine. Just stopping by and reading my blog is a huge support.
