They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Using that definition, I guess I'm certifiably insane.
Last week I bought several plants for my herb garden. Every spring I plant basil, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, oregano, etc. Usually by around July they are either dead, dying or going to seed. Yet, every spring I start all over, full of enthusiasm that this year it will be different.
After I bought all the plants I realized that I had a very busy week ahead of me and I would not be able to pot them all. I didn't want them to die, so I put a little water in the bathtub and put the plants in there. Surprisingly, neither Crash nor Burn tried to check them out.
Today I started potting them until I ran out of potting soil. Tomorrow, it's off to buy more soil so I can finish the job.
Hopefully, this year I'll have a bumper crop and lots of pesto for the freezer.
