Holy basil, Batman!

Meet Tulsi, mama H’s holy basil plant. Tulsi is something of a fickle creature; if she doesn’t like where she is positioned; she dies. So goes the mythology anyway. This is probably the biggest and bushiest the plant has ever been. Ma tells me she will give poor tulsi a hair cut soon. The plant is actually flowering. Ma has been known to cook with the leaves and also use dry leaves as tea leaves.
