A month or so ago, I planted some Basil. Or so I thought. I decided to pick some today as they're growing so nicely. I snipped a few leaves off to smell them and they don't smell anything like Basil. They have a very strong lemon scent to them. Huh... I'm not a Basil expert, but I'm pretty sure this ain't it. Or perhaps it's a different variety... don't get me wrong... I really love the fragrance and I put it in my sandwich today and it added a delicious flavour. If anyone out there knows what this is called, please let me know! I'd really appreciate it.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
