Hypothesis: Basil is not a plant, but a gas, and like all gasses it will expand to fill the space it is in.

Test: Plant just six 4-inch pots of basil where you planted 18 pots the year before.

Findings: See photo evidence

Conclusion: Basil is, in fact, a gas.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
