Thanks Agnes. I grow basil every year.. I always felt a connection with plants but ever since I read "The Secret Life of Plants" many years ago I regard them in a different, special way.

Plants are my favorites. If they really wanted to track aliens this is the frequency they should be using. SETI is just a gigantic waste of money.
