Basil must be hard to grow right?
Last year I decided to grow basil from seed, starting indoors, hoping that perhaps it might work better.
I planted a lot of seeds as I expected that most would die. They did not. Well that's okay, I was sure some would not make it through the transition to the outdoors.
By mid-summer I was giving away garbage bags full of basil to a co-worker who loves making pesto.
and then I made pesto... and little frozen basil cubes... and a crap load of pasta.
I planted basil seeds again this year... maybe just a few extra in case some die .....
Because we know basil is hard to grow right?
I have now potted up some 36 basil seedlings and I still have another flat to go.
Next year would someone please remind me that basil is NOT hard to grow at all.
and would anyone like a few extra seedlings?
