The grape tomatoes are starting to ripen:
The basil plants really exploded:
I ended up cutting off most of these leaves last night to make pesto. I love having fresh basil available to me so readily. I can't wait until it grows back.
And, shock of all shocks, the rose twig actually started flowering:
And it appears the roses are pink. Yay! It doesn't look anywhere as pretty as our friend's rose bush, but it's a start.
