RE: basil- link


Great - thanks! I was reading somewhere that it does have roots in
sacred rites in India or Indonesia or some such place. I need to do more
research. They used it for incense I think, been a while since I read
this obviously. But that's great. I adore basil and grow lots of
different kinds all over the garden. It certainly keeps nasties away
from my beloved peppers! That alone makes it worth its keep!!

have a great day - 

Pam
