Scalped!

I've been scalped!


If my basil could talk......that is what it would say. I almost feel guilty when I go out and whack it back like that. But it had gotten so big that I simply had to cut it back. From the picture you can't tell that I cut it back by HALF!

Look at all this beautiful green basil!



Curly Girl was eager to help me make some basil butter. She enjoyed 'posing' for the camera!


I noticed she snagged one of MY favorite aprons....the one Heather sent me!

Next time I harvest I'll be making pesto and some basil/olive oil cubes for soups! YUM!

Val,
Your basil looks so healthy! and the basil butter looks sooo yummy!! I need to prune mine back again for I guess it's pesto making time. Any ideas for cinnamon basil? I made flavored vinegar with it, but need to use it again.
Have a great weekend!

What a beautiful basil plant! Maybe next year I can plant more herbs. Sounds fun.

Thanks for visiting my blog this week. I hope you'll come again soon.
