Looks great! Pinch those tips (especially that one at the back -- yum on a few slices of fresh tomato) and it'll bush out and grow even better!

Congratulations! It's amazing what a basil leaf or two can do to a sandwich or plate of pasta. Critter, if only my tomatoes are ripe already...

Oh...I had my first fresh picked basil today also. ^_^ (just plain sweet basil) I mixed rasberry basalmic vinegar with olive oil, threw in salt and pepper and then...made a chiffonade of the basil (with the basil? ) then poured that over a coursely chopped tomato and cucumber; both from the garden. (my vocabulary is fading, I say)
(in any event, thanks to this Forum, I learned the name for what I had been doing for years...chiffonade =)


mmmmm...all I needed was a loaf of french bread and a nice dry red wine. it's ok...life IS still good.
