The blessings of basil
I visited one of the basils on the place and stopped it from having sex
(took off the flowering spike) and got two small leaves in the process
accidentally. I brought them in and laid them on the counter.
Just now I
had a salad and ripped up those two small leaves and threw them on the
salad. NICE! Two tiny leaves like that totally made a difference in the
whole salad. Wow. Herbs.
Don't ever think that just one plant, just one herb, can't make a difference. Go ahead. Grow some. Grow just one. Try it!
