A Favorite...Basil

Basil is an annual that loves hot, humid weather.  This basil
was started inside and will be put outside when the weather warms. 
Basil has a spicy clove-like fragrance.  Its perfect partner is the tomato!
What could be better than fresh tomatoes, basil, fresh mozzarella and olive oil?
NOTHING!!  The most popular basil is Sweet Genovese.  I also enjoy
the other basil choices such as, lemon basil, lime basil and cinnamon basil. 
Pesto and other summer recipes thrive on freshly picked basil.
I like to make bouquets of basil and give them to friends.
