Basil Harvest

Today at the garden we harvested buckets full of sweet basil.  With winter’s chill at our doorstep it’s the perfect time to fill our freezers with basil pesto. Basil Harvest

    • We are Dallas County Master Gardeners working at 2311 Joe Field Road in Dallas.
      Come visit our garden on a Tuesday morning, we would love to show you around and usually have seeds or something from the garden to share! Ann

  2. Will you be collecting seeds from this year’s harvest? I absolutely love fresh basil. In fact, last night I made a homemade pizza from scratch using fresh basil from the garden. I love those moments!

    • We were in such a hurry to “harvest” before the freeze that everyone hurried home with a big bunch to make pesto. That’s a good reminder for next year to collect the seeds.
      Fresh basil on a homemade pizza sounds yummy!
