tiny basil

Since the those pesky squirrels dug up my last attempt at planting basil, I went small-scale this time.

If you put potting soil in pressed paper egg cartons (bottom half), scatter some seeds, and water them daily, with enough sun, they'll spout sweet, tiny basil plants.  Every time I pass those $5 live basil plants at the grocery store, I do look longingly, dreaming of the instant gratification fresh pesto would bring.  But I resist.  Once these little guys get going, we'll have more basil we know what to do with.

That is, if I can continue to keep the squirrels away.
