Here is my new basil plant that I got yesterday. I did grow some basil last year also, in a container with some other herbs. The basil did OK, but it never really took off. I’m not sure if it needed more sun, or if it was too crowded in there. This year, I’ll going to let this one grow by itself, at least for awhile. It smells absolutely wonderful, and I’ve already chopped up some leaves with dinner last night. Basil… Yummm! I love being able to go outside and snip off some fresh leaves to use in the kitchen. Absolutely love it!
