When it comes to gardening, I'm not my mother's daughter. My thumb's been a little greener lately, but I still have a lot to learn. For instance, my mint's a mess because I haven't pruned it, so it's dried out and the leaves are falling off. I need to cut everything off and let it grow out again.

My mother, on the other hand, has literally brought plants back from the dead. If there's one iota of hope that the plant will live, she'll make it live. She has a fruit-bearing succulent in her backyard. I've killed succulents before (how the hell do you kill a plant that doesn't require constant watering?), but she brought this out of hers:

Awesome, huh? I'll upload some pictures of the herbs later. The basil's doing excellently and I'm going to finally plant that lettuce and arugula.
