basil plants

I just finished planting 18 basil plants. I hope they grow up to be good pesto! I find that basil is prone to root rot in our damp spring weather. Often, later in the season, I need to fill in a few holes where I've lost plants. But, for now, the young plants look good.

Ocimum basilicum

Good luck with your basil. I also transplanted mine recently and can't wait for loads to make pesto-grew genovese, fino verde, penang lemon and thai.

Wow. Sounds good. I'll watch and see if you post recipes. Its always fun to try new things.

I recommend experimenting with parsley pesto... blend a cup of it up with a tomato, a bit of olive oil, salt, and a clove of garlic
