Basil Plant In A Pot - Early Spring 2015
I was cooking pizza for a little dinner party with our friends from the city a few weeks back so I took a trip to Angelo Caputo's for Chellino Scamorza, some hot soppressata, and a few other items. I usually pick up a little container of basil to top the pies, but they had these containers of potted basil for $0.99, so I figured with the price being less than the container, I couldn't loose.
I could use the basil that night for the pies and then plant it and harvest all summer. I usually buy a basil plant each summer anyway, so why not start early.
Well, that plant sat in our kitchen for two weeks, but I finally got around to planting it in a big pot. One of the lead stalks cracked off during transport home from the store, so we only have one big stalk and a halfie. I gave it some organic plant food and with a little bit of sunshine and some water, I think we'll be basking in sweet basil glory for all of our KettlePizza adventures all summer.
