Sweet Basil is great used fresh in cooking and is easy to dry for later use. It is an annual, about 18" tall with light-green, fairly broad leaves. Spikes of small white flowers usually appear from July to August. Pinch flower spikes to promote a bushier plant. Basil requires a well-drained soil.
Harvest sprigs just before the flowers open for the most intense flavor. Strip leaves and either chop or leave whole to use in recipes. Basil can also be frozen for later use by filling ice cube trays 3/4 of the way and then adding hot water to cover (hot water helps leaves retain their color). Save frozen cubes in a freezer bag or container to use later.

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
