Basil Beauty

The height that the basil grows here in Austin may never cease to amaze me! (This is probably about 3 feet tall.) I've learned that the herb does much better planted in the ground--I definitely don't have to water it as much as the basil planted in pots. I better make some pesto soon...maybe this time I'll try it with walnuts. Mmmm.

Pesto is amazing with walnuts...and definitely cheaper than pinenuts. This pesto recipe is a must-try, and will have you ditching the processor in no time.
