Queen Bee Garden
We have a small balcony garden on the 5th floor and now have over 500 plants (and weeds, can’t tell the difference) growing there so far with the aim of making the kitchen self sufficient for Morning Glory, Basil and Parsley to start with and then see what we can do from there.
Basil for Chef
Problems with mice and birds forced us to employ inventive use of bottle and CD recycling. Lost lots of plants including a chilli plant, completely stripped of chillies and leaves overnight then did not recover.
This is a Basil plant grown from a cutting. I have a very low germination rate from seeds and put it down to having 30 baht glasses. If I could read the sell by date and storage instructions I would realise that cheap seeds bought in a market are not stored at 18 degrees and are most likely very old.
