Mrdann, Is this a great forum or what. What comes first? the gardening or cooking?
The chicken or the egg? Unfortunately, I cannot seem to grow anything,I am a bit impatient, fortunately both my daughter and my son are great gardeners and cooks! I hope to contribute a wood fired oven, I can build stuff. Gene

I always have basil growing next to the oven. Keep picking off the flowering heads and you can keep the stuff growing for ages.

Hello msmustbecrazy ma'am,

this is what I had research based on your question
The modern chicken was believed to have descended from another closely related species of birds, the red junglefowl, but recently discovered genetic evidence suggests that the modern domestic chicken is a hybrid descendant of both the red junglefowl and the grey junglefowl.[7] Assuming the evidence bears out, a hybrid is a compelling scenario that the chicken egg, based on the second definition, came before the chicken.

but anyways, gardening came first because you need to grow crops so that you have something to cook he he

We use a lot of Thai basil as well. The Geek basil is also a good one. An attractive small bush with small leaves. Where we live the basil will grow all year round, you can trim it like a hedge and keep it growing for years.

Types of Basil

Basil is a member of the mint family and is very similar in appearance. The most popular kind of basil used in cooking is sweet basil, but some of the other more widely-known types are clove basil, lemon basil, and cinnamon basil.

With so many varieties, it can be difficult to choose. Here are just a few types, with a brief description, to help in your quest for the perfect basil for your savory dish:

Sweet basil-the best known, it has a scent of clove when fresh.

Genovese basil-has a similar flavor as sweet basil and is almost as popular.

Napolitano basil-favored by many for pizzas.

Lemon basil-also called "hoary basil," has a lemony smell, like the name implies, but
has a sweet taste.

Mrdann, thank you. Now I know. There, that's that. It all makes sense now. Good, I got that out of the way. Gene
