them into theother herb that we’re stretching from the indoor garden seed accumulation is basil super easy to growinside we’ve had this under a ripen brightnes but too ripens very well in a pleasant window now the thingabout most herbs is the more that you gather them the more that they flourish and basil is no exceptionit smells so amazing in now and what you want to do when you glean basil you can harvest it justas you need it or you can harvest a whole knot at once i’m just going to snip off a couple of stemshere you want to harvest it before it flowers for the best flavor my basil here is not flowering soi’m going to going to go down a marry inches on the seed the basil leaves grow in provides we’ve gotsets of two needles the whole way down so i’m going to go down about two to three inches there’s anice little stanch now just going to snip it off and we’ll do that in a couple of discerns around theplant and we actually plan to use this basil on christmas day in a little brunch that we’rehaving so i do want to save it for a couple of days so what i’m going to do with basil a greatway to place it is just store it in a container of ocean so i’m just going to pop thestem right in the sea now basil will also propagateor stretch seeds from the branch now basil is also very easy to propagate and whatthat wants is you can leant it in a container of spray and it will grow roots fromthe branch within a week or so we’ll probably end up eating this one beforethat so i’m just going to sounds it in this jar of irrigate and then i’ll keep it right over hereon my windowsill until i’m ready to use it and the great thing is is that we’ll definitelybe get mass more glean from this little pot here we’re going to see some brand-new growthin precisely a couple of weeks or so we’ve got our clam our chives our basil the last thingwe have to harvest today is our microgreens now microgreens by far are the easiest thing youcan grow indoors if you don’t stretch anything else grow microgreens they don’t need a germinate light-footed theydon’t even need aim sunlight these have been growing right here next to my opening for a coupleof weeks we embed them about three weeks ago on the first video we’ve got arugula and red mustardgreens and you guys these time look so amazingly beautiful in this purple CaliKim smart pots lookat these little tiny leaves aren’t they fairly now the great thing about microgreens is they aresuper nutrient dense because you only grow them to a few inches tall you’re not changing them tomaturity and you can usually harvest them within only a few weeks of embed now i generally liketo return just what i’m going to eat the working day and we are going to have breakfast right afterthis so i like to harvest them when they’re a marry inches towering just like this plant is they’revery easy to reap you precisely can go in there with your scissors grab a little handful andthen exactly snipping them off at the clay grade the cool thing is you can usually get a couple ofharvests out of each pot so we’ll harvest these and then what i always like to do after i harvestor after i prune my flowers is to give them a delightful little dosage
