Several have written to ask me about the basil growing in my Prepara indoor garden.
This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago. I’m so happy with the amount of basil it produced. Once the leaves got large enough to harvest, I got probably 1 cup of leaves off each week. It is pretty scraggly now and I’m going to clean it out this week and replant. I set up a second one in the basement but I’m afraid I wasn’t very attentive to it. I planted cilantro, parsley and oregano in the second one. First problem is that we keep our basement really cool at night since Chad is gone. And, I let the darned thing run out of water. And, if that wasn’t enough, the parsley and cilantro shot up pretty tall and I didn’t raise the light and kinda singed the ends of the leaves. I’m probably going to clean it out too and a couple of weeks after I plant the basil upstairs, I’ll replant the second one with basil. Parsley and cilantro are inexpensive to buy . . basil is not and we use lots of it.
Anyway, I’ve been really pleased with the indoor garden.
