It’s the end of summer, and our basil plants looked like jungle weeds. That is, before Aaron harvested all of them to make pesto today. Last year, we procrastinated so long that we lost most of our basil harvest. This year we were nearing that same tragedy, but we’re not going to let it happen again. Aaron will be busy making pesto today. We’re going to make two types–The traditional pesto with pine nuts, and an alternate with some other type with yet-to-be-determined nuts.
