Fresh Basil!

I picked my basil plants clean a couple days ago. It has been unseasonably warm here, but at some point reality is bound to return and the frosts will come - this is Vermont after all! So no more fresh basil. It is now nicely dried and crushed in a jar in my pantry. I think I will be set for quite a while!

It makes me feel good to dry things. Like I am honestly settling in for the winter, although at this point all I have is dried basil and dried carrots. They probably wouldn't last me long in dire need, but its a gesture..

(and I also posted a new painting in my etsy shop - have a look?)

Just found your blog on etsy forums. Love it. Your basil looks wonderful. Mine didn't survive as usual. We really don't get enough sun here in Vancouver.

Ooh, pretty. Eye candy.

I somehow always kill basil. Apparently so does Nancy, hehe.

Setlling in is nice though, isn't it? It just got chilly and fall-like here two days ago.

Fresh basil is divine..and drying things, putting up for winter I think is embedded in our genes. Enjoy every morsel!
