So, I bought a "Natural Garden - Basil Grow Kit." It was only a dollar and came with seeds, a sod disc and a tiny clay pot. I put it together a couple of weeks ago and stuck it in the window sill in my office. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw tiny green stems coming out of the mud. More surprisingly was the sweet strong aroma these tiny budding leaves had at such an early stage!
Today I transplanted them over into a larger pot and spread them out so they will have plenty of room to grow out.
I'll keep you updated on it's progress. I'll also share with you, one of my favorite treats for summer when they have grown out into leaves large and ripe enough to cut off and enjoy!
