This is the last picture I took before I went on vacation: I left my apartment Friday night and returned Sunday evening over a week later. I asked my friend to water the basil plant twice when she was over feeding the fish. Even though she lives in the same apartment complex, I wasn’t going to request the almost-daily waterings it would probably require to make it through the August heat. And it turned out to be a record-setting heat wave: 8 straight days of low temperatures above 90 degrees, 9 consecutive days above 110, new Aug. 8 record of 117…

While I was enjoying Mission Beach in San Diego, the basil was soldiering through. Stay tuned to find out if it survived. Spoiler alert: it didn’t.
