Initial planting

Bought a cheap 8 inch pot and filled it with miracle grow indoor potting soil to about 0.5 inches from the top. Sprinkled sweet basil seeds around, then covered with a quarter inch of soil. Watered it with a large glass of water and it compacted down a bit so the top of the soil is now about 1’’ from the top (maybe should have watered soil first?). Sitting in the sun now, here we go!
