We're growing basil. I love basil. It smells goods, tastes good, and looks good. I harvested about a cups worth on Sunday and made pesto. Yummo. You should try it....really you should.
I love growing herbs, because it's the closest I can get to having a garden right now. Plus, fresh herbs that don't cost a gazillion dollars like they do at the grocery store is nice. I don't like paying a gazillion dollars for 1 bunch of basil. I can grow it. You should too.
