We planted a bunch of basil in the backyard this summer, and it’s still going strong. Is that normal? It’s December and there were bees buzzing all around, pollenating the little basil flowers.
I like to pick it and put it in tomato soup, stir fry, spaghetti sauce, anything. It really brightens things up. I highly recommend planting some, and if you don’t have a backyard places like Trader Joe’s and Home Depot sell them in little self contained pots so you can keep one in the kitchen. They’re really easy to take care of and smell great too. Do it!
