A couple of weeks ago, I needed some fresh basil for a recipe. Rather than buy a small container of basil that would go limp in a couple of days, I decided to buy a basil plant (it was in the produce section) and have fresh basil all winter long. I transplanted it into a pot when I got home and tenderly nurtured it. I had never tried growing anything in the winter, but how hard could it be.
I'm hoping someone will buy me a Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Herb Garden for Christmas.
