Day 172 – Basil Shrimp

Day 172 - Basil Shrimp

Wohooo, had my first ever basil harvest from my veggie garden this evening. It was so rewarding and I felt like I am on cloud nine. Without any doubt, the best thing I have done this spring was building my veggie garden. To me gardening is relaxing and now it’s turning to be therapeutic. Watering the plants, taking care of it and finally harvesting the fruits and veggies: gardening couldn’t get any better than this. I am not sure how many times I would have dreamt of plucking veggies from my own garden and cooking with it, finally my dream is coming to reality. After harvesting the basil, what’s next? Of course, preparing dinner with it, made basil shrimp with homegrown organic basil; had the most satisfying dinner ever!
