Ramona here with Ramona’s Basil Garden….

Ramona with BasilYou haven’t heard from us in a while…..

Yes, We are still here! We’ve just been busy as bees…….that is pretty busy by the way!

We have a large presence on the web including websites on basil gardening, websites on gardening in general, and of course who doesn’t have a Facebook page?

On these sites, we discuss all kinds of different things concerning basil gardening, gardening in general, and recipes. And we do love recipes. Many of you know our passion is cooking and using basil in recipes to give that extra added taste and zest.

Plus, we try to give plenty of tips, tricks and techniques.

We also have a wonderful line of garden tools we have personally developed and branded for backyard gardeners such as yourself.

So, if you haven’t heard from me in a while….this is why….we’ve been really busy expanding and growing our websites, garden tool line, and Facebook presence. It’s all good!
