now is a good time to panic


My mom has a green thumb. A VERY green thumb. The house my parents own has a large yard, and she has cultivated an herb garden, a rose garden (which was destroyed by Hurricane Isabelle), a lavender zen meditation garden, and the front yard is gorgeous and full of hydrangeas and a swing with climbing roses and all kinds of stuff.

Meanwhile, I cannot even keep a cactus alive. Is it a genetic anomaly? The last plant I had even a bit of success with was a basil plant. It produced plenty of delicious basil for caprese for a few months, then somehow ants decided that the roots are a delicacy and destroyed the poor little guy.

I’m so sorry, little basil plant. You were a good plant. Your leaves were supple and tender and tasted wonderful with sliced tomatoes, mozzarella, and balsamic glaze. I miss you, and it’s terrible that you were eaten alive by ants.
