On Monday, I gave the garden some much needed maintenance. I weeded, picked off any yellow leaves or those that were too close to the base of the plant and removed a few spots of soil where it looked like some fungus was starting to grow.
I also tripped off some flowering buds from the basil as I was told that the flowering will change the taste. Finally, I rotated my flower pots as the amount of afternoon sunlight varies a good amount from the left to right side of the front porch.
I am still concerned about inadequate drainage so I might try to create more holes rather than just expand the ones we already have. Otherwise, I think the plants are doing pretty well. Fingers crossed! Any other tips for me?
