A lot more #basil harvested today from the #garden! Will cut them up and freeze in oil using ice cube trays for #winter soups

Keep picking your basil and other #herbs in your #garden so you can freeze it for winter soups etc. Pinch out the #flowers so they continue to grow leaves to extend their season

Don’t forget to pick your #basil regularly so it grows more. Leave a few leaves on so it can remain #healthy. Mine need to be re-planted next to the tomatoes with more space
