    Would love to try, but need to know for sure what chickweed looks like I’m sure somewhere around the house it is growing, as most weeds do. Making a mistake in identification could be yucky, not to mention deadly.

    That looks great, Jill–thanks for sharing it! I try to grow basil every year to make pesto. Makes me long for summer! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have never made a pesto, but am looking forward to doing so from my GMO free organic garden, pinning this recipe to try later. Our chickweed has come and gone before I knew what it was, looking forward to next fall which is when it is in bloom here.

      You must live in a hot area for your chickweed to be gone already. I hope to get most of ours dried and stored before its gone. {fingers crossed ;)} Thanks for pinning and great to hear from you, Joyce!
