Notes:

I found this growing wild by our road and the leaves sure smell just like basil. I’d love to transplant and keep to use in recipies if it truly is. I can’t imagine it being anything else but want to be sure before ingesting it.

    Probably perilla frutescens. Weedy. Transplants very easily, and will come back with a vengeance.
