Sorry Henry Basil

I've used and abused you all summer long to make delicious and large amounts of pesto and pasta sauces. I thought this last time was going to be it for you.

Thankfully you just keep on giving.

Seriously though. I'm going to miss this basil plant I've named Henry this fall/winter. He's done great things for me and provided some life and greenery in my kitchen. He was only $11.00. If I made everything I've made out of him without him I can't even imagine how much money I would have spent. I've made cups upon cups of pesto.

Next year if all goes according to plan I should have an actual backyard were I can grow a new Henry Basil and give him tons of different herb babies like rosemary, thyme, oregano, parsley, sage and cilantro.

I'm uber-excited about fall produce though!! I can't wait!!

We once had a basil plant like your henry and it survived the winter...maybe you should give him a chance?

Maybe Henry could make it through the winter? That's so nice to have an herb garden, I would love any garden- urban apt dweller that I am.
