Seed Swaps

Basil, purple   

Very late in the season, but I’m still in the experimental stages of my gardening. I’m mostly just curious.

ETA: Very happy with this basil. Doesn’t seem to matter that it was planted late in the season. I can plant basil over and over. It takes about 2 months to harvest and I could have 3 or 4 full harvests during April to November. These are now finished and the planters are ready for next year.

Oh, and the basil is delicious! Highly recommend this one. Such a pretty purple and it has pink flowers. I made spinach basil rice frequently during the summer and I have chopped purple basil in the freezer as well.

Hello, Crochetkim, can you share your recipe for that spinach basil rice. I grow tons of this basil.
