Herbal Experiment - Day 46

The last update on the Herbal Experiment was on June 25th. Since then I have lost the thyme. ***sigh***
The basil from farmers market seems to be hanging in there. It got a little wilty last week, but it is springing back. It started to bud flowers which is a good sign. Per the instructions that I googled, you are supposed to remove the flowers, so I did.
This picture was taken a week ago on 7/16.
Wilting with flowers.

This picture was taken this morning, 7/23. It's looking alot better.
Of course, this pot also had thyme and parsley. The parsley is gone, but the thyme is still there but barely hanging on. Next time, I will not plant thyme with basil. I think I might plant the thyme in the ground.

So, in this pot I originally planted seeds from a buzzy seeds kit. I planted cilantro, chives, parsley, marjoram, basil and thyme. The only thing still alive is the basil. It started wilting last week , but it came back.

Here are the sage, lavender and chives I bought at Farmers Market. The sage is doing good. The lavender and chives are surviving but haven't made much progress since I planted them 46 days ago.
