Thai Basil is a beautiful herb, that comes out in the Summer time. It’s a beautiful purple colour, with a strange minty flavour. Can you see it in the centre of the plate? Those are the flowering parts of the herb plant. I also purchased a leek, which isn’t something that I regularly buy, as it’s like an onion with more dirt to wash off! But I like to mix up the veggies that we buy, as there really isn’t access to a large variety. So we may as well explore what we do have!
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for a new veggie!
Also, pictured is my beautiful pink-ribbed chard, grown from my hydro! Isn’t it beautiful?
