of all the herbs, basil is the one I harvest and use the most. also it’s the hardest to take pictures of! it is in the middle tier, all by itself and is totally getting blocked by the rest of the pot. so much so that I just went out and planted more basil in it’s very own pot. I love being able to run out and get some basil for whatever I am cooking. I’ve used so much of it, and it just keeps making more! I learned to pinch off the top buds that look like they will flower before they do. also to pick just a few leaves from each plant at a time. it works. basil is my most favorite herb!!!
