I told my wife to enjoy it while it lasts. Which won't be very long. Raised garden project started today. Can't wait to have these bad boy herbs in the back yard at my office! This one was from the guy that is building the garden. Love your plants and they love you back...right?
Now that there are two references to the flowers, note that they are talking about on a live plant, not your beautiful bouquet that has a seriously compromised root system... Once you decide which plants you want to grow, pay attention to plant health instructions, like encouraging growth and trimming guidance.
Time for another batch of Carbonara with basil blossom garnish!
Another reason I suggested planting chives is that chive flowers can be picked, rinsed, stored in a zip lock for 3-4 days or so. The blossoms on your basil will only last one or less, once plucked. Rosemary blossoms are also delicious, but also more fragile than chive.
That whole bouquet is maybe the top 5th of a couple of the stems of the plants. I think the zoom settings on that camera make it look a little bigger than it is. I think he was intending to take care of the flowering by handing it off to me...
I normally keep this by the window...what amazes me is who much better fresher it seems to stay than if its was a plastic container in the refrigerator...I was gonna start keeping more of the herbs in the kitchen like this, that way I can reach up and just pull leaves when I need them. I'm not sure why more people don't do this.
