Last week for Weekend Herb Blogging, I posted a few pictures of my herb garden. This week, I will finish off with the rest of the garden. As I said before, my herb garden has done quite well this year, despite lousy weather.
Let’s begin with basil. Isn’t it gorgeous? I love basil and use it all the time. I have all ready harvested one batch of basil, pureed it with olive oil, and have it stashed in little jars in the freezer, ready to brighten up our winter meals. Last year, at the end of the summer, I made basil infused olive oil. I kept this in a jar in the fridge, were it stayed in sort of a paste kind of thickness. It was perfect for spreading on bread for an instant bruschetta.
