Buying Fresh Herbs

So I was at the produce store the other day and I needed some fresh herbs for the risotto I was planning to make for dinner.  For just $2.29, I could get a package of basil:


Fresh herbs, I find, typically last for about a week before they go bad.

Right next to the packaged herbs, were these potted ones for the exact same price:


So, for $2.29, you can buy either a little package of basil that will last you a week, or you can buy a basil plant that will last you FOREVER!

Makes me wish that I didn’t live in a basement so I could actually grow my own herbs1.
