➳ All the sweet basil fresh from the garden. | Basil flowers are edible and make a pretty garnish on foods, or even make good tea! They taste like basil, but milder. Not a fan of the flowers and just looking for an abundance of leaves? Cut the blooming flowers off your basil plant so the plant can focus its energy on making leaves instead of blooming flowers. 🌿 Shout out to my mom for continually watering my herbs so they flourish.
