Fresh Basil Plant Mystery

I bought a small pot of  basil 10 days ago at local Smart & Final.  I enjoy fresh basil on my pasta and tomatoes.  I eat tomatoes at work as snack.  I sprinkle some fresh, chopped basil on my tomato.  They taste so fresh and good.

But, my plant is dying rather quickly.  I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

I give 1/2 inch of water.  And I leave the pot where I get partial Sun light.

I thought I would enjoy fresh basil from this pot for ever (hehe).  I am going to buy another pot and give it another try.  I would like to figure out how keep them alive for a long time.  Maybe I don’t live in the right climate?  I don’t know.  I must find out.  It’s mind boggling.

I hope I don’t get obsessed about growing spices. Some of you know what I’m talking about.
