A gardening happy ending

By Melinda Mawdsley

Gardening is full of humbling failures.

This is not one of those stories.

This entry is about my amazing basil.

Earlier in the spring, my editor put basil seeds on a table for everyone to share.

I know enough to know there are many different types of basil. However, I also know that I like basil.

I took some seeds, and I'm proud to say, they grew!

Point is, I knew nothing about the seeds, but I gave the seeds good soil, plenty of water and moved them in and out of the sun when they were little.

I have learned the value in sharing seeds with people.

Now? I expanded my palate after I sauteed my vegetables in oil and lemon basil the other night.

(I'm pretty sure it's lemon basil because it smells and tastes like lemon.)
