Today, I am thankful for the abundant basil that is growing in my front yard. I cut three huge bunches today and hung them to dry. I still have enough left to cut and dry much more. Because it has grown better than ever before, I won’t have to buy dried basil for at least a year, and never again if I can get it to grow half as well as this year in future years.
