Pesto season has arrived!

My basil plant finally got big enough where I felt comfortable harvesting some leaves for pesto. Next thing I knew, it was blooming. I’m going to snap off the flower/seed stalks, mostly, so it doesn’t get four feet high overnight.

  1. Yum! That's a great photo too ... Can almost smell it. ;)

  2. I love sweet basil... it smells so good, especially when you pull the leaves for pesto. It sure does like lots of water though!

  3. Yum, yum, yum!!! I just got my first plant last week, and it smells divine! :)

  4. Hey Sherm, sorry to hear about your recent difficulties. I'll make a point to C&J tomorrow. Hugs!

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
