Farmer Phil's Green Sage

Green Sage

Green Sage is the most common sage available. This variety is a perennial that does well with a spring planting. Size of green sage can vary, however, with plants ranging from 12 to 36 inches tall. This means that, when adding your transplants, about 24 inches of space should be put between each. The soil, in addition, needs to be well-drained in a pot or garden and should have a pH of 7.

Recipe: Sage Pesto

Sage is often used in place of basil in pesto. Why not try a recipe for sage pesto once your crop has grown? Here’s our recipe:

1/2 cup sage leaves
1/2 cup flat leaf parsley
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup olive oil

Wash and thoroughly dry sage leaves and parsley. In food processor, mix parmesan cheese, walnuts, garlic and salt. Process until mix is an even consistency. Slowly add olive oil until pesto has reached desired consistency.
