My basil story

Mel just seems to be getting a too much attention lately so I thought I would write about something else.

I love fresh basil, but for some reason I have the hardest time finding it. I have found it once in Tegus but other than that one time I can only find dried basil.
So a while back I randomly found a packet of seeds for organic basil imported from Canada so I bought them, planted them, and patiently waited. When they started growing I was elated, I started having pasta for almost every dinner. A few of the basil plants naturally started getting bigger and bigger blocking out the sun for the little plants. I then decided to give a few of the plants to some employees. I brought them in paper towels with water in little baggies, I was then asked what the plants were, I answered (thank you online translator) albahaca! Albahaca? said one employee, that stuff grows all around my house...
