Harvesting Thai Basil: Messiah College Aquaponics

In Aquaponics, Gardening, Propagation on November 7, 2012 at 5:26 pm

So today we finally got around to harvesting the Thai basil from the gutter system. The plants had become very large and produced a very large crop. We harvested not only the leaves, but also the flowers. The stems will most likely be used for the production of Basil Jelly. We are planning to dry most of the crop for storage and future use; you can only use so much Thai Basil at once. The bases of each plant remain in the system and will sprout new branches and leaves shortly. Check it out!
