Basil: Is easy grow just pinch a bit and use...the plant will grow tall if not pinched back every so often and the new leaves always taste better. Usually by the end of our summer the aphids take over the plant and we just pull it up and put it in the compost. * Basil is a annual*
My favorite way to eat basil is with tomatoes. Making a big batch of spaghetti sauce is great!!
You can also put basil, tomatoes on goat cheese drizzle a little olive oil then place on a cracker.....Yum!
