My dark opal basil. I’ve been cutting it down and trying to dry the leaves but it’s too humid 😥 I let one plant bloom for the seeds and have been cutting all of the blooms off the other so it keeps making leaves. #basil #herb #dark-opal-basil

@Cyndi I was trying to dry them outside because it is warmer out there, gonna bring them in and put them near a fan

So pretty! It would make a colorful pesto!

These were getting eaten up pretty badly and I thought they weren’t going to make it. Put it up on cinder blocks and they aren’t getting eaten anymore. #basil

Thank you @cyndi I will do that. I have two raised bed gardens on either side of the walkway leading up to my patio. One I have herb seedlings in right now. I’d like to do the other side too, would probably be easier to do cuttings from the side that’s already done?
