Many New Jersey farms and gardens are already growing basil, and many people are already picking and using it.

I love basil, and use it as often as I can. My favorite use of the fragrant herb is in making pesto sauce. I've had it in restaurants and from jarred brands available in stores, but nothing beats homemade.

It's so easy and if you have plenty in your garden (it grows easily anywhere the sun shines) like I do, make some! See how above
