Our basil was quickly outgrowing its little salsa jar (yes, Japanese salsa. Don't worry, it was just tomatoes with a couple of onion pieces. Nothing to adversely affect our basil or trick it into thinking it is cilantro).
So, we were off the the 100 Yen Shop to buy a terra cotta pot. That's right. 100 yen for the pot and 100 yen for three plastic blue trays to go under the pot. That's a grand total of $2.50 for a very nice pot. Unfortunately, they do not sell terra cotta dishes for under the pots, but that's okay; the plastic tray keeps us from feeling too posh.
Now, how long will it be before I can make pesto?
