A lot of my gardening is smoke and mirrors, herbally speaking and because of The Herbal Husband. The Herbal Husband went down to the local garden center to buy something he needed last year. He came back with a bunch of basil cuttings that were pretty much lifeless. He said, "They were just going to dry it. I asked if I could have them. I'm going to put them in water, root them and plant them." I don't say no any more. He has brought life back to many plants that I thought should go on the compost pile. It does keep him out of further trouble! So as you can see by the photo above, it worked. We actually have had Greek style caprese salad a few times. Adding feta cheese instead of mozzarella and olives. I think though that the basil will have to come off the windowsill for the next several nights! They might get frostbite or die!

For those of you in the U.S., I don't have to tell you that it is FREEZING! Actually we are around 24 degrees at the moment but we are only going down. The one saving grace about this cold is that we do have snow cover and it will be over by Wednesday for the 'Burgh! But in the meantime we will be Zero tomorrow! Hope you are staying warm wherever you may be. Talk to you later.
