Basil

Last year we got the Horizon Herbs basil collection and we finally planted seeds in winter.  We’ve been growing their holy basil all summer and still have some going, too. These pics are from February, been so busy.

This is the sweet lettuce leaf basil and it tastes a little like anise, which I don’t particularly like, but I sure like this basil.

The Thai basil is finally growing, took a long time to sprout.

This is the Genovese basil and it grows like crazy.  Also tastes a little like anise and many leaves are over two inches long.

This is the Greek basil.  It’s about 5 – 6 ” tall now.

There was also African basil and Mtule basil seeds that we had almost given up on, but they’re finally sprouting.
