New Season Herbs

Baby basil plants in this week's hilbarn boxes were ordered weeks ago from Tara at Four Seasons Herbs based in Exeter (pictured at Deviot Market on Sunday with daughter Jess). We've been checking up on them each week until, finally - last week - Tara told us they were ready. We met Tara at Deviot to pick up our tiny little pots of tenderness, and wrapped them in newspaper for this week's boxes. Thanks, Tara, for nurturing them through the chills of winter! Don't know about you, but we're dreaming about tomato, mozarella and basil salad ...

When unpacking this week's box, I was stoked to find a little baby basil plant! My partner looked over my shoulder and said "sorry little guy, you're life's gonna be short in this house!" - I haven't had much luck with basil in the past, but I'm hoping to make it work this time!
