Growing basil from seed


This year we started basil seeds (outside! it’s been so warm!) so that we would have plenty of basil for ourselves and to share.

And let me tell you — if all of these baby seedlings turn into healthy plants we will have PLENTY to share.

Having fresh basil on hand is something we can no longer live without. Each year we seem to grow more and more of it.

Most of it ends up as pesto and just last week we used some of last year’s frozen for a wonderful pesto chicken recipe.
