Lemon Basil & A FREE Giveaway!

Yes I know we’ve done this before but…..Ya’ll know what today is?  Yes smarty pants it is Monday, but it’s also the LAST Monday that I’ll be an UNpublished author…for like the rest of my life!!!!!!  Come next Monday I get to join the club….they aren’t even gonna make me egg a car or anything…not even the deviled kind!  Ya’ll saw that episode right?  If you don’t know what I’m talking about then you’d better do yourself a favor and rent you some Gilmore Girls…like PRONTO!



Gosh you’re a stubborn one aren’t ya?  Well seeing how you’re NOT watching the best show ever made I guess I’ll let you in on something…


You see, I have all these lemon basil plants out back that are just heavenly.  I use them for my tea, salads, chicken…and sometimes I even sneak out there when it gets crazy in the house with those hooligans and just pinch and smell because, Aaaaaaaaaawwwwwwww…sometimes you just gotta do what ya just gotta do!


Apparently these lemon basil seeds are kin to the bunnies running around here, because they have multiplied like CRAZY!  I started out with one tiny pot of them and they have reseeded themselves into every pot on my deck!   This my friends makes you lucky.


Yes, lucky!  Because I have decided in honor of my new beginning next Monday (the book remember?) that I will share my overflow of seeds with a few readers to give them a new beginning as well!  Sound like fun?  You’re jumping for lemon basil seed joy aren’t you? Well, if you’d like to be entered into the basil seed drawing which will take place next Monday, all you have to do is comment below and you’ll be all signed up!  I’ll randomly pick TWO lucky readers to share my lemon basil seeds with!  That’s right, you’ll receive your very own package of home grown lemon basil seeds directly sown from my pot to yours!

I know, I can’t believe it either!  Who would’ve thunk three years ago my little lemon basil plant and a story book idea would both come together to make a moment we’ll never forget?  Crazy right?

Want to know how to extend your lemon basil love into the fall and winter?

Don’t forget to comment below to enter the drawing and be sure to revisit next Monday to see if you’ve won these golden seeds of Aaaaaawwwww! Well, actually they are not golden at all, they are a brownish black, but that’s beside the point really!

See ya Monday!
