Mama and Daddy are growin' basil and tomatoes! 'Cept the tomatoes aren't red yet, they are little tiny green ones still. I can't wait till they are red, Mama says they are her favorite!
Anyway, our basil crop...wait..Dada...stand over here, that's my good side...
That's better. Anyway, we are growin' large leaf basil. This was our first leaf - it's almost as big as my head!
We love basil, and pesto, and anything involving basil and pesto.
Dada...this is not time for peek-a-boo. You are so silly.
Know what it is time for? Eating basil!
Pesto tip from my Mama: Instead of using pine nuts in your pesto, try using almonds! They are a lot cheaper, and a lot better for you. And it tastes delicious, too!
