Just today I paid $2.99 for this basil plant. That's ridiculous because in a few short weeks, I'll be able to buy a 6 pack of basil for that price or less that will grow into humongous plants. But I was craving that tomato, basil, garlic, olive oil, pasta thing so I was able to justify my purchase. And it's been raining like 5 days straight here. Besides, I have some tomato delish left over in a ziplock bag from summer that was in the deep freeze. And I'm cleaning out my freezer.
But at this price, if I haven't convinced you to at least plant some herbs this year, then I'm not doing my job.
