My friend Jeannie is always looking out for us.
When she saw large pots of basil at Trader Joe's for $2.99, she knew it was a good deal (way cheaper than buying a bag at the grocery store), so she bought us a plant.
And look what showed up at our front doorstep! Mmm, it smelled SO delicious! Along with a beautiful iris bouquet from her yard.
You can never have enough fresh basil, right?
Especially as our tomatoes continue to ripen. I can already taste our roasted tomatoes with fresh basil and lots of garlic, as the plant has grown to full size now. Yum!
My husband and I especially love our garden tours through Jeannie's beautiful yard!
Hospitality happens non-stop for Jeannie. And we are often the lucky recipients!
Do you buy basil in the store, or do you grow your own?
