There is nothing better than walking out the door and snipping fresh basil for my dinner tonight. I'll be adding it to my special Basmati Rice and the Mahi Mahi with Shrimp will have a few leaves thrown in as well. It's my wife's favorite!
Basil is an annual and is easily grown from seed. There are over two dozen types of basil including lettuce-leaf which has large leaves, cinnamon basil and the purple leaved varieties. Though it needs full sun, it does need more moisture than some herbs, so be sure to keep it watered; especially in pots. For those of you in northern climates, you can grow basil inside as a window herb if you plant the seeds in the late summer in pots and bring inside to set in a bright and sunny window.
