New Basil plants popping up all over.

I have small basil plants popping up in several places. I am digging them up as I see them and putting them in small pots. I will later plant them with my tomatoes to improve their taste and help ward off insects. Of course I love having an abundance of basil to harvest as well.

I will soon have some of these basil plants available for swap too.
