Strange though it may seem – at least it seems strange to me – I have now owned a plant for over 2 weeks. It has survived, and what’s more, I’m pretty sure it’s grown. Based on my past history keeping plants that’s quite an accomplishment on its part.

But the fact that it’s grown is now starting to be a problem I’ll have to deal with. it seems to be getting to a point where its stalks will no longer stay upright without any help. Right now I’m not sure whether or not that’s a bad sign of some sort. Guess I’ve got some research to do.

    I suggest just plucking some of the leaves and making yourself a nice tea.

    I did as you suggested and had a cup of fresh peppermint tea earlier tonight. Very tasty indeed. Now I just have to try and figure out how much I can safely harvest.

    From my experience with basil you always need to keep some of the bigger leaves and lots of the younger ones. With moderate watering, your plant project should successfully continue for a while :)
