Bravo Basil!

One week last spring, among the fresh fruit & vegetables we collected from local farmers and growers, we included a pert little basil plant in each hilbarn box. We ordered them especially from Tara at Four Seasons Herbs in Exeter, and they were a little late arriving because of the late start to summer. This week, we received this photo of a strong and healthy basil plant from one of our hilbarn customers. Fiona writes:
"From the moment the tiny plant was gently placed in my daughter's hands as part of our hilbarn delivery, she has nurtured it with such love. Not only has it been a wonderful addition to our home & recipes, we have been able to trim large portions and share with friends and family. One such portion was kept in a small vase, grew roots and has since been potted. My daughter's sweet basil plant is commonly referred to as "Baasil!" (Fawlty Towers style). 'He' is much loved and although this pic was taken a couple of months ago now, he's still doing very well. I'm not that IT savvy, so I thought I'd simply send it in an email for you guys and let you know how much we appreciate your hard work. Ultimately, I believe you deliver a lot more than simply food to homes here in Tasmania, Thankyou x
Thanks for sharing the great story, Fiona. Your comments are why we love doing what we do.
