If you love pesto ….

March 7, 2010

Try growing Lettuce Leaf Basil for an abundant harvest of enormous basil leaves to make your own pesto with.

I ordered my seeds from Pinetree Garden Seeds, but also found them in the Seeds of Change catalog.

Last summer I bought some of this flavorful basil at a local Farmers Market, and was convinced that I should add it to my list of  ‘New Vegetable Trials’ for this year.

Also on my ‘New vegetable Trial List’ for this year are:
Sugar Nut Melon
San Marzano paste tomato
Yugoslavian Red lettuce
Costoluto Genovese tomato
Carola potato
Marina Di Chioggia squash
Big Daddy pepper
Black Truffle tomato
Broccoli Romanseco Veronica

    Mmm, I’ve got some of that Yugoslavian Red lettuce planted for this year too – but none of the others. Thanks for the tip about the basil, I’ll definitely look into that! Dreaming of lots and lots of pesto this summer…

      I’d love to know if you have a favorite pesto recipe that you could recommend.
