I’ve been slow about keeping up, but this week I wanted to update
It is definitely something to do, the basil grows well in the pails, I drilled a hole in the bottom side of each. Then we put 3 plants in each on. My wife harvests them every couple of weeks and uses some to make pesto I think it is called. Very tasty stuff on lots of dishes. Adds some serious spice to life.
A great thing about Basil is that if you harvest it right it doubles after every picking. Basil is something that also enhances this type of garden as well, many people like to brush the plants and then sit in the garden. One of my friends love to do so, she says it make the area a “happy place ” with the smell of the fresh basil.
