basilIt seems fitting that during a summer of firsts, I should start my *first* blog post about an herb I’m growing in my *first* garden.  Call it a bandwagon, call it the recession, but there is something within me this year that said: it’s time to start growing food. So I am. Little by little. We’ve got basil, cilantro, chives and rosemary.

Anyway, basil. It’s a wonderful feeling getting home from work, watering the garden and picking the basil I will use to make pesto and incorporate for dinner. It’s happening a lot and I really love it. I’m already excited for next year to expand to tomatoes, lettuce and other delights.

Okay- I wasn’t really planning on starting a blog tonight, and I promise to have more enjoyable entries to come, but here’s to firsts and here’s to new endeavors!
