Until my basil is mature, (and assuming it’s going to live) I buy the fresh stuff from our little local market here in town. I just happened to see, out of the corner of my eye, on the package it says, "A Taste of Iowa", so I had to read further… Sure enough my basil is grown at Mariposa Farms in Grinnell, Iowa! That’s where our favorite pumpkin patch is–Carroll’s Pumpkin Patch.
Very cool. I love that I can continue to support local Iowa business! (we eat lots of fresh basil!)
Here are a couple links, if you’d like to look:
