Spring approaching (still cold but days are getting longer) gets me in a growing mood. I’ve shown you this basil growing tip before but it’s worth repeating.

All the instructions with more images are in the earlier post but basically we get fresh potted basil in the grocery store, cut the stems off at dirt level and stick them in a glass of water for a couple of weeks. That’s the stage I’m at now. After the stems grow roots you plant them in potting soil in a large pot and you have fresh basil for the whole season. We’ve successfully grown basil like this for years as opposed to several failed attempts growing them from seeds. Try it!
