Thai Basil


I planted some Thai basil this year because I had gotten some seed I-don't-know-why and I generally plant whatever I have seed for. 

It's a small and very sweet smelling basil.   And it blooms like crazy.   All. Summer. Long.   

We think it's OK, but prefer the Genovese style basil.

The bees, on the other hand,  love it.   Love. It.

I'll be planting rows and rows of it again just for them.

  1. I have an entire raised bed that I made for herbs........I don't end up using any of them. They all bloom for the bees now! Chives, Oregano and Tyme. The girls love them all =)

    1. Yep. I know what you mean. Oregano and thyme are big ones here, too.

    2. Not exactly related to this topic, but I came across this yesterday and since I've played around with hive monitoring I wondered if this might be a good solution?

  2. That is totally cool. Too bad I don't have an iphone. No coverage out here, so no plans to get one, either.

    1. Oh, right. Good point =(

      I may have super crappy internet at my house but I should be thankful I have decent cell coverage!
