I have often heard from my friends that they never have luck at growing basil. I, on the flip side, have always been very lucky that it flourishes.
My basil is planted and kept indoors. Its home is between 2 large windows in my kitchen. Other than having to keep watering it everyday (it dries out quickly in this location), it is so happy that it gives it produces plenty of fresh basil all season long.
Though I have several herbs growing, basil is one of my most anticipated herbs each spring. On pizza, in salads and making fresh pesto, I love it.
I'm so happy the growing season is here! FINALLY!
