they're dead, Jim

I've chucked my basil plants, which had withered under the merciless blast of my air conditioner. Basil plants are supposed to bask in a hot, sunny, Mediterranean climate. I couldn't give them that. I also discovered just how long it took to grow basil to maturity (a couple months), and how little yield there was for the effort.

Buying and raising plants was a mistake. From now on, I'm buying basil leaves at need from Costco, which sells them in large plastic packs.
