Antonio and I harvested a bumper crop of our herbs, mostly basil (of all three varieties I grew this year), but also some oregano and mint as well to tide us over for the winter. He was so proud of the harvest, that he would show each container to Julia, so she could see it and smell it. I am in the process of drying most of the herbs (so our house smelled strongly of basil last night). We are planning to make some pesto to freeze with some of it, and I may experiment with making Lemon Basil Vinegar.
