Fresh basil is a must have in our house! We use it in Thai food, omelettes, Italian food (obviously), and we even make BBTs (bacon, basil and tomato sandwiches). Ben and I have had a basil plant on our windowsill for as long as I can remember. Until now. Recently, we have been experiencing an earwig problem. I woke up with an earwig on my face. I was mortified. But worse than that, they are living in the basil!
We just chucked two beautiful, full plants because they were crawling with bugs and had fresh holes in the leaves. Our window looks so empty without the plants! Until the earwigs decide to leave our house, we'll just have to keep our basil in the fridge (stupid, fucking earwigs).
