Homegrown Garden Seedsheet Pesto Recipe

NO ONE LIKES WILTED BASIL FROM THE PRODUCE ISLE, OR BROWN, PRESERVATIVE-LADEN PESTO PRE-MADE FROM THE STORE. EVERYONE KNOWS PESTO IS THE BEST WHEN YOU MAKE IT YOURSELF, BUT HAVE YOU EVER GROWN YOUR OWN ORGANIC HERBS TO GO IN IT?

Pesto is essentially a blank canvas with a few minor guidelines to do it right. First, pick your favorite herbs-- the fresher the better (especially picked moments before from your personal Seedsheet). Make sure to have an acid (lemon), garlic (obviously), and some kind of oily nuts or seeds. Pine nuts are the classic choice, but you can always try using walnuts or toasted almonds to get a slightly different result. As far as the cheese, let's just say it's not mandatory...but we'll leave that one up to you.


Check out one of our favorite delicious pesto recipe sketch below. This simple recipe is great for nights when cooking up a quick meal for two!

Purchased the basil and heirloom tomato seed sheet in the spring, it has been the easiest and most successful gardening experience ever. My only regret is not having texted your number when I first planted the seed sheet, I did it about two months later. I’ve received the best advice on how to promote healthier and more productive growth. Although my tomatoes and basil have done great this yr, I bet I could’ve yielded even more had I been receiving the texts at the appropriate time. Next year I’ll know.
I love that the seed sheets are organic as well.
Will def purchase the tomatoe/basil again and hopefully will decide by next spring on other sheets!!!
Seedsheets – great idea for a frustrated ‘gardener’ such as myself. Thanks guys!!
