Basil, Thai basil, chives, and lavender

This evening I whacked back the mint bush to give its neighbors a place in the sun and finally planted the seeds and plants I got at Homestead Heritage: sweet basil seeds, Thai basil seeds, a garlic chives plant, and a lavender plant. Then I watered everything. I planted basil twice earlier in the spring, but while the leaves I've tried have been very tasty, the biggest plants are probably only three inches tall. I'm hoping that the new basil plants will do better in a sunnier location farther away from the octopus-like mint bush.
