On the plus side, the woman who gave me a few of my favorite plants got a huge bag of basil clippings! So they’re not going to waste 😅

I might end up trimming it back even more. I don’t feel like I trimmed enough. But anyways here’s my basil from last night to now. #basil #growyourown #herbgarden

Yeah looking at these pics side by side I really think I need to go in and take more off the top.

@brightcolours it’s raining right now, but I’m going to chop it more tomorrow. I want a bushier plant. Not necessarily a tall one

Repotted. He leans a little from a curved stem, but this should give him room to let his roots spread out

Had to use the basil I just added to the garden! I’m thrilled about it. It adds such an amazing flavor and smells divine #freshbasil #basil #sweetbasil #nexttimeillusebalsamicinsteadofoliveoil

Also, EVOO on avocado slices with S&P is DELICIOUS
