Only grow plants that I can eat.
This is my motto regarding my little garden outside my window. Actually it's always been my motto when it comes to any type of plant around my apartment. I tend to kill most plants because I'm not at home most of the time and sometimes forget to water it until it's too late. Or the summer heat kills it while I'm at work.
But when given a motive such as you can eat it!, it triggers something in my brain and I don't forget to water it as much. This is how my basil, rosemary, shiso, and okura plants are still alive and well outside my window. Good deal, right?
My favorite lately is this bagel with mozzarella, tomato, lettuce, and of course, basil :D
