Guess who's having pesto???

We scored some fantastic stuff at the farmers' market this morning, but the best one by far was this gigantic basil plant for $$$FIVE DOLLARS$$$!!!. Pesto for all!

We managed to find a nice healthy dose of garlic scapes (my second favorite thing to find there after fiddleheads), some gigantic asparagus for the grill, portobello mushroom caps, apples for Ben, mixed greens for salad, and a few others. I love Saturdays.

Hmmm...Maybe you can harvest enough of the leaves without taking the whole plant down...I LOVE basil....
