Basil is an essential component to most summertime meals at Full Belly. We grow it in between rows of eggplant so that we have a place for the tractor to go when we're harvesting from the tall eggplant plants in the middle of summer.

Basil doesn't like to be cold; the best way to store it is in a glass of water, like you would a bouquet of flowers, and many people recommend covering with a plastic bag to keep in the moisture, though take it off to breathe if it builds up too much condensation. You can also store dry in the refrigerator.

Available: June - October
