Well this one women that I have become friends with gave this cutting it was in a 4 inch pot now it is in a decorative pot that i made a few years back and it is now starting to grow.
My Pesto Basil from a local dg'er!!
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.
