Basil in a bowl

Basil from the vegetable garden is kept fresh on the top of the kitchen counter using a simple bowl half filled with water. It smell wonderful and tastes even better on sandwiches, for cooking and eventually a pesto sauce which I have yet to do. The addition of fresh herbs is changing the way we cook and eat at our house. What do you do with Basil?

    Your basil looks beautiful. My garden basil is drooping. I need to investigate to see what is wrong with it.

      Sounds like the heat is getting to it. I have harvested most of mine. Froze two freezers bags full of leaves.
