Yes it's easy to grow and does well here in NS. The scapes make a nice pesto.

When we had 3 sons in the house in the fall we'd make batches of pesto w basil, garlic, pignolis, butter and EVOO -- freeze the lot. These days we just buy the pesto at Costco.

i think that butter isn't called for in the original recipe!

speaking of pesto -- you can use pistachio instead of pignoli. italian pignoli is reputedly best, as the asian variety seemingly has a lower tolerance for heat. if i am gonna make cookies which go in the oven, they aren't gonna have pignoli nuts on them.

No cheese in your pesto? The pistachio variant is good, I also would recommend it.
