Observations and ruminations on things happening in my garden and projects related to gardening.

Harvested basil seed yesterday afternoon and then spent the next 6-7 hours hand picking thousands of basil seeds. It was tedious work and eventually I decided it would take too long to completely separate the seeds from the seed heads, so got as much out as humanly possible. I have a 3" x 5" bag 2/5ths full; enough seed to plant a small field; do I really need to have lawn in the backyard? BTW, if anyone knows of a simple way to separate the seeds from the dried seed heads, please let me know.
