“I have a problem,” I told Dan guiltily as I climbed out of the car. I had just made a trip to the garden center for some topsoil and mulch and I got a little…sidetracked.
He sighed, “how much basil did you buy?”
“Only 1 this time, I swear!” This brought my basil plant count to 18. We were running out of garden space for them all, but I couldn’t resist the new-to-me boxwood basil.
So now we have one bed, one cold frame, and 7 containers filled with basil of all shapes and sizes. From the tiny-leaved boxwood basil to the Purple Opal to the citrus-scented lime basil to the traditional Genovese basil, we’ve got it all: lemon, lime, Purple Opal, Genovese, Thai, Greek, spicy globe, boxwood.
I need to go get another bag of mulch this week…don’t let me come home with any more basil!
