This was taken after their first drink of water.
Before planting them this morning I cut all the basil back to the new little shoots starting farther down on the plant and tried to do the same with the cilantro. I had enough basil to make a batch of pesto.
Ready to try some Pesto.
My first attempt at Pesto. Tried a little on a small piece of bread that had just come out of the oven, was good. Want to try it on an herb bread sometime and on some tomatoes when they start to ripen.
