My Basil Plant Flowered ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒธ

I just noticed that my Basil plant has a white flower... as a matter of fact, a cluster of four white tiny flowers. And not many leaves left...

It happened almost overnight. I did some research and I learned that the plant lives one year, and I have it for about one year. So, it is time. ๐Ÿ˜ข Circle of life, what can we do?

We enjoyed the fragrant leaves all summer long. Cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. Heaven. ๐Ÿ˜‹ I kept clipping the fat leaves. Today I learned that I did it wrong, I shouldโ€™ve cut only top leaves and let the bottom ones grow.

The flowers are pretty. They are so tiny! I wonder if more flowers will form. I read that now the leaves are not good, they are bitter, so I wonโ€™t use them any more.

I have to wait for the seeds to form, then dry and then plant them. I will do that. It is so cool to have fresh Basil, grown in your apartment. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Ah yes the circle of life is a bear. I am trying to find a loophole ;)

I just love basil for eating but you have shed a new light on this beauty. The flowers are lovely!

I love basil with tomato and cheese... and in every salad honestly. Yes, the flowers are lovely!
