Notes

Started as companion plantings to tomatoes, but were quickly overshaded and overwhelmed by their companions. Not enough growth for a good bowl of pesto. Wish I'd used tomato cages to give lower plants more access to space. Genovese Basil seeds purchased from Garden Harvest Supply in Michigan (www.gardenharvestsupply.com).
