Our first little harvest was used as a trade for FUN!
We traded Rex’s basil for pool passes to Aunt Heidi’s and Uncle Tommy’s pool. Our three boys swim with their three boys weekly, and man, is fun ever LOUD! The boys play Marco Polo, basketball, a slam dunk jam, and various other raucous activities.
Aunt Heidi loves to use basil in her salads, so when the top leaves of Rex’s basil plant started to get about two inches long and an inch or so wide, we thought some fresh herbs would be a nice gift of gratitude.
