Outside it is cold, windy, and rainy. Inside our kitchen bump-out it is warm and steamy which is why the basil is doing so well. Every year I plant the huge basil pot but this year I also started a small pot because it will make a tasty gift for someone. This year we got a little surprise; two seedlings in the large pot. I'm thinking sunflowers but Okanagan Boy (aka Mr. Cowboy) thinks that they might be cucumbers. We'll just have to wait and see.
