During lunch the other day I was reading O magazine in the Reading Room in Bryant park, one of Oprah's favorite things was a grow bottle from Potting Shed Creations and there was a discount code so I decided to order one. They are recycled wine bottles turned into kits for growing herbs. I ordered the basil one but the discount code was expired (darn old magazines in the reading room). I still ordered it and finally received it two weeks ago. The instructions were long and complicated so I let it sit a week, but last weekend I put it all together. Much to my surprise they sprouted in 4 days! The instructions included spraying them with water each day and keeping it covered with a bag until they were an inch tall. So day I finally got to remove the bag and sit it in a warm and sunny place.
