People, we have plants! And not just one or two plants. Hanging plants, flowering plants and of course herbs. We have a plant that M rescued from the fire escape and nursed back to health. We have no idea what this plant is, but it is green and leafy and I love it. I have always wanted to have lots of plants, but I do not have a green thumb. Just the opposite really. If you give me a plant, I will almost assuredly kill it. But my husband on the other hand is some sort of plant wiz. It is fantastic! By the way, if you are like me and have trouble with keeping plants alive, I recommend basil. That is one tough and delicious weed. I have trimmed it to within an inch of its life and it still produces a crop of leaves just perfect for pesto. In fact the next pack of seeds we get for the Aerogarden will be international basil so I can feel like I am contributing to the plant life around the apartment instead of just staying out of the way so things have a chance to live.
