the eggling

over the weekend i became the proud father of a basil egg. i went to park life in the richmond district (aka that little knick knack store on clement), and adopted an eggling in need.

i have to say that the eggling came to me packaged with care

the eggling's mini pot, seat, plant pot bottom appears to be from germany. what a trip this little eggling has made in order to be birthed right here in foggy san francisco.

the instructions were quite clear. so i got to work helping this little guy. the spoon is mightier than the sword.

with a little encouragement,

and a little water,

we're ready to let that egg shell guard down and blossom into a beautiful little basil! (atop my mackie hr824 mki speaker of course! best seat in the house)

his name is ray
