Extra Life for Basil

I discovered, quite by accident, that basil roots nicely in water and keeps much longer than most herbs.  I had cut too much one evening, so I stuck the leftovers in a glass of water, set it on the windowsill and kind of forgot about it.  Before I knew it, it was sprouting roots and continuing to grow new shoots.  So, be sure to cut what's left of garden basil before the first fall frost hits and you'll have fresh basil for another month or so!
