Ahh ok. SO you are doing what I call the ball effect. Short and full.
I'm trying! It seems to work, but not quite the way it does in the video? I'm thinking that is more a matter of the kind of basil and not the technique. I'm hoping to find some new-to-me types of basil in this "International" kit to be new favorites!?
It is all fun...and more of an "art" to me than a science, if you know what I mean?
Today, I really need to end the Basil/Parsley garden from September, I think...but it is still doing so well! Arrrrggghhhh!

We are enjoying plenty of herbs, especially basil, these days. I'm trimming the dill back a lot, trying to encourage that center growth of the good stuff!
Yesterday, we went to Walmart and I noticed that they have some AG stuff in stock. Unfortunately, none of it had any prices on it. They had some machines, Sprout and a Harvest Slim, I think. They also had a number of 6 Pod Seed Pod Kits. Petunia, tomatoes, lettuce and the Italian Herbs. I grabbed one of the Italian Herbs and got the price at the check out: $7.00. That one came home with me. Maybe I'll take another look at the kits, next time we shop at Walmart.

I'm contemplating ending the Lemon & Lime Basil plants. I'll probably just be generous with them in salads and stuff, so that I can cut them back & then just remove them. They smell really good, but just don't seem much like basil to me. That said, there's plenty of basil in the garden, so it isn't a big sacrifice?

Lemon & Lime Basil are now in the freezer. Well, the leaves anyway. Since Marseilles was well behind the others, I was able to move that pod to the spot where the Lime Basil had been. A little more space all around now.
