Harvesting Some Basil

basil harvest

Look at all that basil. I have been meaning to harvest my basil for the last couple of weeks. I wanted to catch it before it flowered. So I finally found the time last night. The problem wasn't cutting it back. It was deciding what to do with it. Kalyn had a very timely post explaining how to freeze fresh basil. So that's what I did. Maybe next go around I will dry some.

The purple basil had already begun to flower so I clipped those back as well and I am hoping to dry the seeds to plant for next year.

Now I just need to figure out what to do with all my parsley and dill.
