I didn’t like the leaves losing their purple. So I checked it out on the internet and as the leaves grow you are supposed to pluck them off and let the plant keep producing leaves and growing. Good to know. I’m so bad with plants.
So here is what I harvested.
The plant has been looking pretty good since then. I used the harvested leaves to make a purple basil pesto. I made a pesto pizza with it for Friday night pizza night.
