I used to be in charge of the basil, but my husband found out I was apathetic at best, when it comes to taking care of plants. My plants need to take care of themselves...like a cactus. Or they only get watered when it rains.
Basil under my care did okay, but basil under my husband's care does fantastically. So he's in charge of plants, now.
I'm just showing off the cast-offs from his seedlings.
