Sunday in the Garden : Basil

9 December 2007

Basil

Sometimes I’m pretty close to giving up on this whole “organic gardening” thing – because trying to grow fruit, vegetables and herbs without chemical pesticides is really hard.

In a very ironic way, I now appreciate why farmers choose to spray their crops, and why I would rather pay extra to buy pesticide-free organic produce.

Anyway, I’ve finally found ONE spot in my garden where snails, slugs and caterpillars can’t touch my herbs. My basil is so much happier there.
