I am trying so hard to grow basil on my windowsill. I do not in any way have a green thumb, but I want a vegetable garden very much one day, so this is the beginning. I saw one tiny green shoot this morning, and I'm very excited. My husband thinks I'm crazy (he has more than a green thumb, he's a plant whisperer.) I couldn't find white pots with holes in the bottom so I bought ceramic ones and painted them. Yes, that's probably toxic.
