Our Spring 2012 Victory Garden
These are plants for our current victory garden. Some are new friends, some are old. Our spring growing season is very short. In fact, our garden goes dormant in July and August. (Not worth it to deplete the aquifer to keep plants alive in 100+ degree heat.) Eventually, you can see the final product of these plants at RedWhiteandGrew.com.

Essential Oil, Sweets, Sweet Basil, Herbs, Gardening, Culinary Herb
Basil, Thai basil, or sweet basil, is a common name for the culinary herb Ocimum basilicum of the family Lamiaceae (mints), sometimes known as Saint Joseph's Wort in some English-speaking countries. Basil is originally native to India, having been cultivated there for more than 5,000 years, but was thoroughly familiar to Theophrastus and Dioscorides.
Basil (Ocimum basilicum), of the Family Lamiaceae (mints), is a tender low-growing herb. Basil is a culinary herb prominently featured in Italian cuisine, and also plays a major role in the Southeast Asian cuisines of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. The plant tastes somewhat like anise, with a strong, pungent, sweet smell. Via Wikipedia.
