Basils

As best as I know, this is a basic sweet basil but it has yet to send out any flowers. I’ve clipped several stalks for kitchen use but not all of them. It should be full of flower stalks with bees abuzz.

The holy basil isn’t shy about flowering, nor is the Thai basil:

The orange peppers to the right are shishito peppers that all the in crowd foodies were gushing about a year or two ago. They are ordinarily used green but these are turning ripe. The peppers are supposed to be mostly sweet but every one I’ve tried so far has set my mouth afire. They are in the same category as the habaneros on the other bench – pretty to look at.
