Three Varieties of Delish on a 12th Floor City Terrace

 

Three varieties grown from seedlings purchased at the Whitehall Ferry Terminal Farmer's Market in organic potting soil on my terrace in NYC.

A summer supply of fresh basil for our salads and cooking has been a great treat!  Pruning frequently from the top sounds counterintuitive but it kept flowers at bay and more leaf flourishing vigorously all summer, while the lower leaves were the solar panels of the whole operation.

Seedlings from Whitehall Ferry Terminal Farmer’s Market in Lower Manhattan (Open Tuesdays and Fridays all year long).

Organic Potting Soil from Lowe’s.
