Do you remember on July 3rd, when I posted about harvesting my basil? I explained that my first basil harvest always goes to rooting, so that I can have more basil plants. Well here are my first basil roots ready to go back in the garden. They have been sitting on a windowsill in a little jar of water, busily growing roots.
And here they are planted in the garden. You can see the original basil plants that I harvested them from are ready to harvest again. I will cut them back (and probably make some pesto or a caprese salad) so that they are about the same size as the newly rooted plants.
Also, in my garden, my hot peppers are loving this hot, dry weather. What’s happening in your garden?
