Wild basil?

Bob and I spent a day at the river (yes, again) and while walking out on the rocks ledge I spotted these plants. I thought they looked like basil but I was unsure. I picked the leafs and boy, sure enough they smelled like basil. Does any one know if basil grows wild and if so can you use it to cook with? Kind of a cool little find on todays fun day out :) And yes, "I" caught the first fish of the season. heehheheheheehheeee :)

Hey Janell, I have never heard of wild basil. I do love to cook with it. I have this bread that I love to make and it calls for basil. It is a wonderful herb.

Maybe google it and see if you get any results.

Congrats on the first fish. I love to fish. Haven't been in years though. Do you have a picture of your trophy?

Happy Monday!
