It's officially summer and for much of the world, it's an amazing thing, but here in the Treasure Valley, your plants are going do DIE! It's a guarantee! And here's why...

It's summer in the Treasure Valley, your plants are going to die.
You have really good intentions, your plants are going to die.
"Oh I forgot to water them just once", you say... Your plants are going to die.
"I really want to use fresh basil tonight with dinner"... You can't, your plants are going to die.
"It's going to reach 100 every day this week", your plants are going to die.
"I have more discipline than a trained show dog". No you don't, your plants are going to die.
"I'll bring them inside, just for today". Doesn't matter, your plants are going to die.
"I bought really expensive plant food". Without water, your plants are going to die.
Look, I'm not trying to be a Negative Norman, but your plants are going to die.
"Not with that attitude", you say. Your plants are going to die.

The thing is... We all do this; we have the greatest intentions, right? You'll go to Home Depot and buy the clay pots, the soil, the plant food, the plants. You might even use some of the original basil the first day to cook something, but on no planet, in this Idaho summer, will any reasonable human being remember to water those plants enough, to get them through three months, to use them on your plate, in theory that would be great, but let's be honest...

Your plants are going to die.
