A small pot on our kitchen table is serving up fresh sweet basil regularly. The seeds took 7 days to germinate and I have been using this yummy basil in crockpots full of black eyed peas and ham hocks as well as stewpots of homemade spaghetti sauce. In fact, this basil is being used so quickly, I may plant some more.
The herb saver caught my eye as I have tried to keep herbs fresh in the frig in the past with little luck. I think it is worth the initial investment. Nothing like fresh herbs!!!
