editor's note

I got an herb garden for my birthday, something I’ve been considering for quite some time yet have resisted in fear of my lack of agricultural skills. The box showed up on my doorstep, the plants tenderly packaged, and somehow I managed to cover the entire kitchen in soil during the process of placing them in my windowsill. Basil, rosemary, parsley. Sparse instructions left me timid, but I picked the sunniest corner of our dark, tree-surrounded home and gave them each a good drink, sure to set a reminder on my phone to do the same each and every morning.

It was miraculous watching their silent frames grow broader and taller over the week, unhurried and dropping bright leaves quicker than I could harvest them, me desperately searching for a recipe that called for basil and the scraps in my fridge.

And then they were dead.

A few anxious Google searches later, I learned two things: 1. These three plants were very different from each other and therefore required unique treatment. 2. Overwatering could cause root rot, “a condition from which a plant cannot recover.”. . . . Read more in the magazine.
