Too Much Basil !?!

Never had to say this before but I had a basil problem this year.  It started innocently enough, six little basil plants here, six more there, and heck, why not?  Another six.  Basil is one of those plants that just make you feel good.  It germinates quickly and watching those green leaves come out on the windowsill while it’s still too cold to plant anything outside gets me primed to get the garden going.  I ended up with about 18 plants that I put in the ground in front of my tomatoes.  I heard that tomatoes and basil like to grow next to each other.  They weren’t kidding. » » »
