Growing basil is the perfect task for a new gardener, and the book Basil: From Seed to Table, illustrates in detail how to cultivate and use this wonderful herb.
I've been growing basil for years. First of all it's a wonderful herb to cook with and growing basil is really easy. So when my friend Courtney asked me to review her book, "Basil From Seed to Table," I was quick to accept.
Here's the good news:
Courtney is giving one of my readers a free copy.
Simply comment below with a comment about why you like basil and I will draw a winner at random by the end of the week.
We all recognize this green beauty for it's fragrant smell and yummy taste. I typically grow Italian, or often labeled Genovese Basil. It looks a lot like the picture above with large bright green leaves. It's probably the most commonly used and easiest to find in the local nurseries. However, did you know that there are hundreds of different varieties. Courtney does a good job discussing a few and since I already know that basil is easy to grow from seed, I'm now checking out some catalogs from her resource section for some Thai Basil. Her recipe, Slow Cooker Thai Basil Chicken Curry sounds so delicious, I can't wait to make it.
