86/365 Fresh basil
Some of my thoughts right now: my 2011 garden will be bigger; the plants will be farther from the garage wall; the cucumber and tomato plants will each have more space to themselves (they need it, because they're completely entwined in each other); I'll have some additional varieties of vegetables; and I want some herbs!
Because I don't have any herbs of my own, I bought a huge bag of fresh basil on my stop at a local farmer's market. I actually didn't realize at first that I was buying the entire bag of basil (about a gallon-size baggie full), but I was certainly happy to get it!
I kept a sprig to use fresh and dehydrated the rest. It made the house smell wonderful! Basil will definitely be a feature in my garden next year.
