Spring Planting: Basil Seeds

Part I, II, III, IV, V, VI, and VII

Last time I updated, I talked about basil flowers blooming. Remember? Around October when the weather started to get cooler, we decided that the season was over. We stopped watering the plants, and eventually they dried up.

This past weekend, we (read: Luke) finally sat down and picked the seeds from the flowers. It was a painstakingly process - crushing each flower buds individually to retrieve 3 or 4 seeds inside. I helped him (read: kept him company) while watching Kill Bill Vol 1 -- movie is awesome, btw.

I suspect we got at least 50-60 seeds. A package of basils seeds is only, like, 97 cents at Walmart. However the seeds we have are priceless. :)
