Certain foods I have had are given an overdose of certain herbs and when a hint of herb becomes an intense dominance of the dish, I find it about inedible.

You're not the first to notice that. "Too many Cooks spoil the broth". A heavy hand, or adding a whole bunch of different spices just makes it taste strange. The best dishes always seem to be the simple ones - kinda like guitar, any more than three chords, you're just showin' off.

You're in Michigan, basil grows best in Greece and Italy. Next year, start your basil seeds in small peat pots in the house, get them a couple of inches high and then set them out in the planter when the weather is warm. They will grow just fine in a sunny spot.

My wife used to start basil bedding plants here in about March, sometimes under lights, and by the end of April, beginning of May, people would buy them and set them out in their gardens.
