Basil





After the mouse in the greenhouse incident I went a bit overboard with the basil. We have in the garden:
Regular Italian basil
Lettuce leaf basil
Lemon basil
Thai basil
Minette basil
Cinnamon basil
Red Rubin basil
Purple ruffles basil
Variegated basil
I love basil and it is so fun to see all the different kinds in the garden. They smell so good and boy are they pretty. I love to use fresh basil it adds so much flavor. I LOVE pesto in the summer. That is my favorite meal when I am hot and tired, it gives me the energy I need to get back out there and finish the job!

I never knew there were so many types of basil! Amazing! Now I am inspired to see how many types I can keep alive! Mmm now I am hungry for pesto!

Wow, you have a great herb garden! I have two little pots one basil and the other thyme. I would love to have a herb garden like yours. I found you on Aunt Ruthie's site.
