a plant I'd forgotten all about!


Shiso! It's a Perilla- and you know how Magilla Perilla grows! Yikes!
I saw some growing in my fabulous boss' back yard and I nearly fell over. It was sold to her husband as, "um, yeah... that's Coleus..." at a farmer's market for a dollar a flat. A bargain?

It's a componet in sushi making, subtle tasting as it is. It's really beautiful- prettier than any Basil out there. A lot more invasive though...

Just don't let it go to seed and we'll be ok...
