My basil plants seem to flourish in late October/November and every year I plan to harvent them to dry them or make pesto. Every year I run out of time and all that yummy basil freezes. Until this year!
With the help of my niece, I harvested 8 cups of basil leaves and make 4 batches of pesto for the freezer. There's enough basil out there to do another 2 or 3 batches too.
We went trick-or-treating with some friends last week. Cole wanted to be a sack of chicken feed. It was the best costume of the night.....and free!
