Fortunately, I was prepared. I took in the delicate plants that I wanted to save this winter. It's not too many--just some sage, rosemary and a truly beautiful groundcover. I also moved a little surprise plant indoors.
Apparently, my basil was thriiiiving earlier this year, and seeded a little plant in with my blueberry bush. The berries lived underneath the basil all summer, so it's not surprising that a basil baby--who will be evermore known as Mini B--ended up there.
So when I first heard that a frost was coming for us like a bat out of you know where, I dug up Mini B and give him a new home. And then I loved him, and watered him, and made him as happy as could be.
And it seems that so far, he's happy in new home on my windowsill. I'll let you know how he grows.
