I shopped for my weekly groceries today at Trader Joes ($86.10 -gulp) and was so excited to see that they now have live Fresh Basil Plants in for $2.99!!   Now I would like to say I have a green thumb, but I can only grow the plants that don’t count – Raspberries, Dahlias, Strawberries, oregano…you get the point.  So  my question for you is….How can I keep this plant alive?   I live in the Northwest in case you need to know that :)
