Yeah we have a huge basil plant. Hate to lose it when the cool temps hit us in a few days. I was thinking of rooting some cuttings. But if you have a high tunnel and you grow some basil in a small container with protection it just might survive. I use the same 1 gal containers fill them up with water and use it like a Wall O Water. I have pretty good success with protecting tomatoes that way from freezing temps.

I wonder how that would work with some basil inside of my high tunnel??? I always hate when my fresh basil goes away. I don't have a place in my house to grow it... :(

Very clever! Thanks.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."
