This summer I tried my hand at gardening for the first time! I haven’t posted about the process yet but posts are coming!
I started my basil inside in early May. It was a slow start. The sprouts were so tiny and fragile and I definitely thought they weren’t going to grow.
Well, I was very wrong. I transplanted them outside into a pot while I was still building my garden base. They looked so pathetic.
Within a week or so, they got much stronger and I had a few little sturdy basil sprouts. About two inches tall.
I transplanted the basil once again, this time into my garden and it took off!
I have had more basil than I’ve known what to do with.
Here’s one of the recipes I’ve made this summer.
Garlic Basil Butter
- 1 Stick of Butter
- 8 basil leaves chopped
- Lemon Pepper Seaoning
The recipe is very simple. Let the butter get to room temperature then mix in the basil and seasoning.
