We have a frost advisory for the area again tonight. As I was picking tomatoes with any color, I looked at the large basil plants and decided to try rooting some cuttings as I'd read about on Melanies' blog. As I carried the tomatoes into the house, my wonderful husband came home, the washing machine sang that it was done and supper came to mind. Well, after supper and another load in the washing machine and a bathroom floor moped, I remembered that I was going to take some basil cuttings. Pruners in hand, I headed out to the garden as the last glints of sunlight showed on the horizon and got the cuttings in semi-darkness. I potted them in the garage and brought them into the kitchen for a drink from the sprayer hose by the sink. After the pot drained, I grabbed a plant saucer and nestled the pot on the top shelf of the plant stand with some geraniums. I hope the basil cuttings get enough light there.
