I grew a patio garden this summer. Starting with basil seeds and a couple seedling trays resulted in a lot more plants than I thought it would! I also have three tomato plants, but they haven’t grown quite as heartily as the basil has.
My harvest from last weekend included a whole bunch of basil.
I thew the basil into the food processor with garlic, pine nuts, cheese and olive oil, and we have enough pesto to last a very long time. I divided it into small portions (the perfect size for pesto pizza) and froze most of it.
I think I’ll do a garden again next year, but maybe diversify my herbs a bit.
