New Found Hobby

Sorry for not posting as frequently as I should. These few days, the workload is just crazy - my team lead is off to get married, left with tons of unfinished business behind...*rant*

Anyway, I picked up a new hobby last week: growing plant. This is my basil plant, which is very nice for pasta sauce and thai cooking:

Some bones to keep my plant healthy and strong :)

I hope it will survive for the next few months to come..

Bone!? But why? Does it really make it grow better? I've never heard of it. It's cool but, it sounds like icky. Reminds me of the movie about the plant that chews people.

Iwanna: I place the plant near my kitchen sink. Whatever remains on my plate will usually end up as the plant's "meal" :)

I think this is the movie about human-eating plant:
The little shop of horrors

I have a basil plant too, but haven't used any of the leaves yet. When you pick the leaves, do you pick it from the top or the ones at the bottom? Or do you pick the whole stem but not the roots.

Basically I want the plant to keep living so that I can have a continued supply of basil leaves.

I pick from the top, and the whole top part of it (stem & leaves). This helps the bottom one to grow.
