Day 73: Looking for more basil recipes :)

Well, as you can see, the basil is once again overgrown. I was away from my house for most of the week, and as I came back I found that the basil was once again hitting against the lights. So I cropped the topmost leaves.

I noticed also that the lower leaves are starting to wilt. According to the instruction book, this is because the taller leaves are blocking the bottom leaves from light reaching them. But being stubborn again, I won't be pruning the plant right away, but will be searching for more recipes that use a lot of basil. I will also be making a boatload more of, what else, caprese salad and pesto as well.
