This is what 73 gallon sized basil plants look like. Um, yeah you heard me right, 73 gallon sized basil plants. My husband got all 73 basil plants for a .25 total. The store was just going to toss them. As they all needed lots of tender loving care and probably would not sell.

This is what happens when you dont' let your parents sleep in. You unload 73 gallon sized basil plants.

This is what you make with 73 gallon sized basil plants. As I gave them tender loving care, I got enough from half of the basil plants to make this much pesto.

So this is what 68 gallon sized basil plants look like planted into the ground. One plant went to the mail lady, one went to the neighbor, two are going to mom in law, and one is in the hospital, so un-sure right now if it will make it.

This is bed 1.

This is bed two.

This is the pizza we ate tonight with the new pesto. This is Carol's recipe and should be all over the web so I won't post it here.

Easy Peazy Pesto
by Marcie Dingerson

3 cups firmly packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup diaya white cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Put in a food processor and combine. Put into a glass jar and put into the freezer or fridge. It's seriously that simple.

Looks good, we're going to give it a try. Thanks for posting it. And my son says he's going to add extra daiya cheese.
