Ben, your right basil just loves ap. a low nute plant in a high nute bed.

these are organic Genovese, from High Mowing seeds. i have been through every major seed co. i can find, and these are the biggest plants i know of. these are ideal for the restaurants and pesto company i service, because they get their poundage with less cutting.

this picture was taken just before harvesting these plants for the second time.

the taller plants in the back ground are "F1 Aroma" from HM. they were also harvested that morning, for the fourth time. they grow smaller leaves and more branches, but they are beautiful, and make great bunches at a local retailer.

Oh my, what big leaves you've got! Wholly fish poop Batman! Impressive veg stage man! What was the genetics and what did it taste like? The leaf on the bottom center seems to be just past its peak. Impressive shots and again good job, however, ya might try harvesting at different stages so you can track when to harvest. Also like other herb crops, basil splits in two every time you harvest. I begin my first harvest at six true leaves, cutting above the last two. Next harvest I get double then quadruple and so on until the end of the season . This is where one hopes to match fish growth rate verses plants maturity and harvest.

Great shot. Question: do you know the Nitrate content of your water? think should be high. Cheers.
