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 😅
Let’s just say there’s a reason I’m not a barber 😂✂️😂✂️😂 luckily it will fill out soon enough
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.
The more you chop the more it grows!
@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
And pesto freezes well. 😊
Wow that plant is IMPRESSIVE!
lol here’s my basil. I’ve been pulling buds off when I start to see them form but i have no idea where to start when it comes to pruning. any ideas? #basil #pruningadvice
I liked this YouTube vid: "Back to Basics: how to prune basil" https://youtu.be/9noUUTuPh3E
Also this one: "how to prune basil so it grows forever" https://youtu.be/RHZe5sEmtSo
@sushiwaitress thank you!! Those were really helpful
This #basil has some #newgrowth at the base of the #stem.

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
I use balsamic and EVOO
@heyyhayhay good idea! 😁
Also, EVOO on avocado slices with S&P is DELICIOUS
@heyyhayhay I actually just bought an avocado for that reason!😅
