This is my kitty, Francesca – being cute. She fell asleep next to the herb garden, after some rigorous kibitzing on my gardening techniques. ;] I was trying to grow some Hopi Amaranth, and some Holy Basil. The cat ate both. I’ll perhaps try again soon, and document the progress if it goes well, or if it doesn’t. It’ll be interesting for us to track what happens.. The first time through, the seeds for the Tulsi (Holy Basil), sprouted and were an inch tall in 6 days. Amazing. Also, the seeds are from seeds of change, and are certified organic by the Oregon Tilth.
I was attempting to grow the plants with 150 watt light bulb from Verilux, and using photo light stands that I have already to hold them up. It was fun, but didn’t ultimately work out due to the cat eating the plants as they got bigger.
