I am a newbie gardener and planted my first herb container with sweet basil, curly parsley, greek oregano and thai basil. I planted the already started herbs at the end of April.
Now, the basil is growing like crazy. I've got tons of it and they look ready to pick! How do I properly pick them?
Can they be stored fresh or do I dry them since I won't be using this much so soon?
I tried picking a few leaves early last week, washing them and drying them well and put them in a plastic baggie in the frig. But, they don't look so good now! Kind of mushy like!
Also if I do dry them, how is that done?
Sorry for so many questions.
Thanks for all your help.
