My basil family
The basil is an amazing plant. When I first brought it home, it was just a wisp of a plant. Then it grew into a bush. I use the leaves for cooking... the more I cut, the bushier it gets.
I put the little stems that I cut back into the soil and they grow into little basil plants. Now mother and children are doing well.
Soon, we will have one big basil family. I must thank the nice lady at the community garden for giving it to me.
