For example, I have a great looking basil plant but I don't know when I'm supposed to harvest the leaves. Are they ready to use as soon as they grow or should I wait until they're a certain size or something?
I think it's about ready, then, as it is at least close to that high now. I thought I was supposed to pick the leaves, not take the stalk with it, though. Right now, I want to use it fresh.
