The basil has been planted for almost 3 weeks and I can’t believe how well it’s doing. I expected that I would get some basil but I honestly didn’t expect that it would grow so quickly and be so robust. I need to pinch the tops out to make the little plants grow to be more bushy and less spindly. We have spinach salad on the menu for tomorrow night so I’ll pinch the tops out and add them to the spinach salad.
Here’s a closeup.
Over the weekend, I got the second one planted. It will have cilantro, parsley and oregano.
