Pesto Bruschetta

We grow a beautiful garden… take a look at How our garden grows from seeds to harvesting this year.   About this time of year I’m trying to figure out what to do with all of our abundant harvest!  We share a lot with family and friends AND I get to come up with fun recipes for our family to enjoy.  We planted 6 Basil plants this year and everyone of them is just as happy as can be- which means we have a lot of Fresh Basil!

AND with all that Fresh Basil I just had to whip up some fresh Homemade Pesto sauce…
