I love Basil – the taste, the smell, the lushness of its leaves. Everything about it makes me hungry. Now is the time to start off Basil seedlings. I put these in a few weeks ago and placed them in my mini-greenhouse. They were through in a couple of days and are doing well. I sowed some Purple Basil a couple of days ago which I will plant next to the green Basil once it’s big enough. Purple Basil is worth growing if only for its small pink flowers that stand out against the dark purple background. Both taste pretty much the same so one variety is fine, but in my opinion, you can never have too much Basil.
