Re: Plants on your boat

Basil is a great herb to grow aboard. We do and sail with it. The beauty of basil is that most bugs hate it. Take it and put some leaves in your flower and cereal and fresh veggies. Keep them large enough to remove so you don't cook them with your recipes. Be careful with others as we find that bugs like the soil,black ants especially. We are using a rosemary bush as a Christmas tree this year. Anyone who tells the kids it is not a hybrid-Douglas fir gets Fatty shipped to them (hungry)!

Btw, I think bay leaves are the best thing for flour ang bugs but we have seen bugs don't care for basil either.
