Earlier this spring, I potted some basil that I picked up from the produce section at my grocer. It took no time at all to bloom into a full blown herb bush. Several times it has gotten a little weak in the hot afternoons from all the sun, but I douse it with water and it comes back to life by the morning.
Fresh basil is quite versatile. I add it to pizza, pasta, eggs, salsa, sandwiches and just about anything else that I make in the kitchen. It just makes things taste fresh. Plus, having this just steps from my kitchen makes it super convenient to add to anything I'm cooking.
