When I planted the basil back in May, I was severely disappointed with how few seeds were in the packet. Surely this would not give me enough basil to make the pesto I was dreaming off. I was so wrong. The above photo is all the basil I harvested.
The next order of business was to make pesto! It’s surprisingly easy to make, and very tasty on pizza & pasta. As I was picking all the leaves off the basil, I came to the realization that I really dislike the smell of basil.. .but not the taste. Go figure.
