A quick happy thought:

Late last week, the monsoons (3.75″ of rain in a single hour on Friday!) flooded most of my potted plants lining the driveway. Most of the pots lack drainage holes, so my fledgling cilantro, basil and oregano are gone. (The lettuce might still pull through.) However, my tomato plant gets the biggest, bestest pot that I borrowed from a fellow tenant many moons ago. This plant is thriving and today – in the hot sunshine – I even have the beginning of an actual tomato!

Luckily, I also started some basil indoors that is doing pretty well. I can’t wait to make some fresh bruschetta. Really, the bruschetta makes the whole planting ordeal worth it.
