The Declining Herb Garden

Late in the summer we bought a basil plant we put on our back patio. We were really happy with this purchase: We had lots of fresh basil and the plant seemed to be doing fine. So we bought one more (now that we really appreciated using basil often) and some time later we also got some other herbs.

But as the fall progressed we had to realize that our plants weren't getting quite the amount of sunlight they needed on our patio. I think the first picture is from September, while the second picture is from November: at this point we had some rather sad remnants left of our once proud herb garden.
