Tiny Basil

Just wanted to share with you something special for your garden. It's a miniature basil. This time of year, everyone's planting all kinds of basils. But I only encountered this one for the first time last year. It has the same sweet basil flavor, but in mini form. It's great to use anywhere you'd use basil, but especially spinkled on top as a garnish so you can see it. The leaves stay small but the plant will get larger and give you more of them. I've seen these at Gardens and the Great Outdoors recently.

I have a formal vegetable garden and I planted several of these one year and kept them trimmed in a small orb-shape. Beautiful and edible!
