Repotting My Baby, Part II

I am happy to announce that the repotting of my basil was a success! Thanks to some Miracle Grow and plant food from my sister, the avid gardener, my basil has gone through a huge growth spurt. It wasn't without some dirty work though.

There were some white bugs living in the Miracle Grow, so I sterilized it by baking it in the oven at 180 degrees for 30 minutes before I used it to fill the new container. The container was much bigger than the original one (see photo below), but it was the only one I had. After I put in the basil and filled in the rest of the container with the soil, I sprinkled on a little bit of plant food and watered the basil to make sure the soil stayed moist. This is what my basil looked like a little more than a week after it was repotted...


...and more than two weeks after...



The yellow leaves were no longer...

...look at it now!
