Daddy Steve: Here in our garden at Gregoropolis, everything is growing very nicely (including the weeds). It has inspired Giancarlo to do a bit of gardening himself.
Giancarlo: I would like to grow some fresh herbs like basil and parsley. I wonder if anyone would like to help me?
Giancarlo: Say Wyatt, do you have a green thumb?
Wyatt: No, but I have a green shirt!
Giancarlo: Close enough, I guess.
Predictably, Emile must add his opinion.
Emile: You should also plant French herbs like ze chervil and tarragon, to make le sauce Béarnaise.
Giancarlo: Go plant yourself.
Giancarlo: Okay, we have seeds here for basil and Italian parsley.
Wyatt: What will use them for?
Giancarlo: Fresh herbs are so much better than dried. Fresh basil is wonderful on pizza and bruschetta. Parsley is good in many different things.
Wyatt: Mmmm, I like pizza!
The boys get to work planting.
Giancarlo: We need to till the soil so it's nice and loose.
Giancarlo: The seeds shouldn't be planted too deep; just barely covered with soil.
Wyatt: Like this?
Giancarlo: Yes, exactly.
Giancarlo: Now we keep them watered and wait for the plants to come up.
Wyatt: This is exciting!
