My Giant Beanstalk

Dear Basil the Giant Beanstalk,

I really don’t know what to do with you. Between all of the rainclouds that block the sun and all of the neglect that I lavish so freely, you were supposed to be dead by now. Not that I wanted this, don’t get me wrong. It’s just that…I’ve never had a plant stick in this relationship for too long. I’m at a loss for where to go next. It seemed like it was just yesterday, you were so tiny…now you are demanding independence from the kitchen window because your mean mother won’t transplant you.

I think we should have a DTR, because I’m not sure where this relationship is headed. Are you going to want some sort of long-term committment from me?

Note the BLOSSOMS. I've never seen a plant blossom. Or flower. Or stay green.

    *chuckle* I am very jealous! basil seems to hate me… one thing though, if you want it to grow longer without dying out, snip off the blooms. its kinda like preventing puberty… by making sure your plant doesnt get all gross and manly….
