RIP Basil

In an amazing feat of horticultural wizardry, Jane managed to keep half a dozen basil plants alive and flourishing in a water glass right next to the sink here onboard, all summer long.  Oh, they had more than a few near-death experiences when the water nearly completely evaporated, but somehow they always came back. 

Over the summer, the big curled leaves slowly decreased in size tho, apparently missing some key ingredient in their hydroponic world.  Nevertheless, we enjoyed the exquisite taste of basil all summer, and got a blast of spicy fragrance every time the plants were brushed, even slightly.

Sadly, Jane declared today as the last day of the basil plants' lives.

I washed their water glass this evening.
