City living doesn't provide much opportunity for gardening but I do have a basil plant that has been flourishing in my kitchen window for quite a while now. Usually I buy these plants and barely get one use before they sort of wilt and fade away. This little guy has a bunch of new growth and the basil looks so fresh and ripe for picking.
I made some bruschetta tonight with my fresh basil, ripe tomatoes and olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. So simple but so beautiful.
