Basil is one of my favorite herbs to grow in the summer. There are so many reasons to grow basil: 1. It smells amazing! 2. It is super easy to grow and maintain – especially if you will be traveling for part of the summer growing season. 3. There are so many uses for fresh basil!
For most people the weather is still too cold to think about gardening, but for those of us in southern climates it is the perfect time to do some planting!
Ever since I started gardening I have heard and lived slightly in fear of my fruits and vegetables going to seed. I swear everyone talks about it!
I didn’t want to make it just an ordinary herb garden. I also have been trying to think of fun ways to get small child involved with our gardening efforts. Thats when the idea behind the gnome garden came to me! So we headed to Michaels and got some small white picket fencing and a few gnomes! It was then time to get to work!
