My basil seems to have gotten some kind of white dots and some leaves dried. I gave it the old Neem treatment and we'll see how I go from there.

Here's my list of herbs I grow:

Basil
Oregano
Sage
Dill
Chives
2 types of garlic chives
Mint
Chocolate mint
Plectranthus amboinicus
Thyme
3 types of Parsley

I also started growing a pineapple tree a while ago. Essentially took the green bit of a pineapple and put it in the ground and it grew roots and I now it's got a life after being eaten.

Also avocado.

Tried to grow prickly pear but birds ate it so I raged.


Does DAC have a herb garden full of mutated talking plants?

Good thread. I just got a grape plant and it hasn't been doing too well. Also I tried to grow a blueberry plant way too early and it died on me so now I can come here for advice.

Does the grape get enough sun? Also did you check if the soil is suitable?

your basil might not be getting enough light and/or water although if its like a mould or anything the plants diseased so you should chuck it before it spreads. maybe

i have a greenhouse with some chili and tomato plants in as well as some other shit. in the garden im growing a shitload of flowers and crap like lilys, petunias, hyacinths and whatever. and weed lol XD afro

We grow tomatoes, peppers, and squash. We tried strawberries last year but goddamn birds ate them. Built a net to go over them this year. My wife will have to do all the work though, seeing as to how I have to stay out of the sun (Doc's orders).

I had a coworker that grew amazing grapes every year. He keeps the vines pretty short so they grow thicker, not as many bunches but what little he had were super good.

I don't think it's lack of light. I'll do some research on mold later on, hope it won't fuck with my basil too much. I'd hate to plant basil now, because it's getting quite cool at night, and it'd put unnecessary stress on the younglings.

We have a lemon tree that pretty much grows like crazy and is older than me. My mom occasionally uses the lemons to put in some water or squeeze on something but she mostly just gets that lemon juice from the store. We encourage people to take as many as they want because it grows so much so fast.

I think I tried lemonade once but then I realized how much work it is and you basically have to put tons of sugar in to make it taste remotely drinkable. Kinds of puts you off when you are trying to be one with nature but have to put tons of sugar and honey in to even drink it.

If we had an orange or apple tree I would treat it like a pet but it would probably die, the more you care for something the more likely it will die.

So that's why patients kept dying on me back when I was an ER doctor.

Cakster finally did something that didn't turn out to be shit or become cause for an eye infection.

So the only thing you ever accomplished is actually the work of someone else.

To be expected.

You keep aiming so low that no one cares when you fail.
