Cindy Wilson says: July 26th, 2011 at 11:09 pm i love to grow basil but hate when it goes to seed then you can’t cook with it cause it is so bitter…but still smells good and wards off bugs Reply Hyzenthlay says: July 27th, 2011 at 9:10 am If you watch for the flowers and pinch them off as they appear, you can keep the basil from flowering and going to seed. It’ll just keep growing the leaves you want 🙂 Reply Karen says: July 27th, 2011 at 9:43 am Good to know! I check out the plant every day so I’ll keep an eye out. Reply Josie says: July 27th, 2011 at 11:55 am We grow a lot of basil in our backyard as we are Italian and my grandmother puts it in everything, espeically the homemade sauce! It also freezes well and if you have too much basil Karen, you can always make some pesto sauce! 🙂 Reply Karen says: July 27th, 2011 at 1:42 pm How do you make your pesto, Josie? Reply Josie says: July 27th, 2011 at 4:45 pm We don’t! LOL nobody at home likes it! And i still won’t actually eat the basil…..i’m always doing what i did when i was a kid, pick it up and toss it (or swipe it across my plate) and tell my nonna she put way too much basil this time hehehe LOve the smell of fresh basil though. Always in our sauce or you can slice up some bocconcini cheese with tomatoes, drizzle with olive oil, and top with fresh basil! Reply Marian says: July 27th, 2011 at 12:21 pm mmmm……I’m going to have some on tomatoes drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with parmasan tonight! Reply Karen says: July 27th, 2011 at 1:33 pm Y’all are making me hungry. I just finished off the last of my heirlooms last night for dinner… wah! Reply Cindy Wilson says: July 27th, 2011 at 12:29 pm i agree if you pinch before the flowers it won’t go to seed but i swear those flowers pop up over night….Can’t wait til my tomatoes turn red looking forward to some fresh mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes. Reply Karen says: July 27th, 2011 at 1:32 pm Eeek! I think I’ll pinch that basil off today. This is my first time trying to grow it so I’m learning as I go along. 🙂 Reply Steffi says: July 27th, 2011 at 1:37 pm There is NEVER too much basil.
