Not much to say here except that:
- I nabbed this thing at Trader Joe’s for a mere 2.99 (!). A box of basil from TJs costs about a dollar more — can someone explain THAT to me?!
- I’ve been dying to grow my own herbs all season and now, I finally can!
- I’ve had this for a week and have used basil in 80% of the meals I’ve made and it’s delicious.
- After a week of basil consumption, Herbert’s stems are looking pretty barren. But thats okay! I water once a day, leave him in sufficient sunlight, and I have a feeling he’ll be back in shape in no time.
I’m hooked. Long gone are the days of packaged basil. If you’re one of those people that believes that adding basil to anything will make it tastes better (me, me, me) and you happen to be in a TJs or farmer’s market this weekend, pick a basil plant up. You won’t be disappointed!
