The majority of the basil I planted in late spring has bolted. I’d be sad if it it wasn’t so pretty. It also gives me an excuse to plant some more. I’m also trying to find some good Thai Basil recipes. I want to be able to use it before it bolts. I was thinking of using it in a Thai fried rice recipe. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

Sweet Basil- the classic must have for every garden. It’s used in numerous recipes including pesto.
