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.
