Harvest #3

Big harvest today. Between Zeus, Kepler, Prince, and Ghost Fire, we got enough basil for a little over a cup of pesto. Cara noted that some of it smells of black licorice, and others of weed. Kepler and Zeus were both about 14 inches tall before the harvest, and Prince and Ghost Fire had long branches with several nodes, due to skipping a harvest.

I watered Zeus and Kepler with 24 oz each of plant food, as usually. I probably should have gone a little more to get more all the way through the pot.

The smaller basil are getting root locked. This weekend we’ll transfer Ghost Fire and Kepler into a rail hanging planter, and put Summer Sunshine and Morty in their old pots.

Overall, everyone is looking happy and healthy.
