I picked up a good "people" hint in a newsletter about feeding basil to chickens. I never thought of cutting basil sprigs to bring inside to keep in water all winter, but that's what the chicken lady does for her human family. Gonna try that this year, too, and now it has me thinking maybe other plants would work that way. Anybody take cuttings of anything to bring inside for winter harvesting?
Only cuttings of stevia and catmint to hang and dry. I pot up my basil and parsley and bring them in to live thru the winter. Basil is difficult in my house though. It doesn't like it cold so doesn't usually make it all the way.
