I plant my basil seeds outside in an area that has light shade, they seem to like it.

Yes, I guess that's a root. I was expecting to see roots growing out of the bottom of that hard piece. Now that I look at it closer, I see that one long strand and it looks like a few little tendrils are coming out around the top edge of that hard bottom. It's amazing how the sprout is noticeably bigger each morning. It's on my kitchen window sill. It gets light and some sun during the day, but the back of my house is pretty shady because of all the trees.

Can you put up a trellis or pergola to provide a little shade?

Anytime I have tried to make it nice outside the neighbors have destroyed it or stolen our furniture. We've been here for 14 years, longer than any other tenant.

Yup, good thing there are parks and walking trails nearby so I can go outside and enjoy the outdoors. It's about time for the Farmer's Market to start up down by the river, I'll be hanging out down there more.

But, but, but, you live in Canada, the land of the polite, where no one ever locks there doors, and everyone loves Bambi. Are there misplaced New Yorkers living in your apartment complex?

Now there's some professional stereotyping for you.

Truly, I'm sorry you have such inconsiderate neighbors. Life could be so great if everyone would just behave themselves. I hope you can find a solution to your dilemma. Maybe if Shrek hangs out on the patio, eating ear wax, that'll make the miscreants think twice before messing with your yard.

Chief? Since when do I live in Canada? I live in Montana...Missoula is not the wild, polite west...unfortunately. The university students have no manners.

I edited my post to reflect that you live in Montana. Please look at it again. I got just had a moment of brain stupidity. Your must have looked at the post just as I posted it. I had it revised almost immediately.
