I am an absolute sucker for fresh basil. Oh my goodness, the stuff is heavenly. So, I figured, what could be better than trying out a few different kinds to see which varieties I like best, and which ones work best with different dishes?
Hooray! Today my herb seeds arrived. The garden will be sporting:
Italian large-leaf basil
Sweet lemon basil
Purple sacred basil
Siam Queen basil
And just for good measure, there is peppermint and spearmint, and I couldn't resist the description of their Alaska mix nasturtiums, and they threw in some sweet rocket as well.
Now if that grow light would just get here . . .
