Basil and Chillies
Now that I have started cooking more regularly, I wanted to have easy access to fresh ingredients, something on the line of going to the backyard and picking my own vegetables and herbs. Unfortunately, the house does not have a real backyard but we have a small courtyard. That was by choice because when we first looked at houses, we wanted something extremely low maintenance and we did not want a backyard. Now, I would really like a garden, nothing big but enough spaces to plant a few things. For now, this courtyard is enough to house my new basil and chilli plants! I secured them from my dad who has a green thumb so they are currently in good health. Everyday after work, I immediately go outside to water them. I am hoping that I can keep these two plants alive.
