My basil has been growing like crazy although the stalks have turned dark. I am not sure what that means, but the top of one of them has started to flower. I am guessing that this is normal, but don't know what I should do about it. Can I snip off the top and try to get it to grow roots? Is that something that can even be done with basil? I still have so much to learn, and it is so embarrassing asking questions that I think may be dumb in the presence of so many great gardeners. Seriously, some of your gardens are amazing, and I can only hope to have a fraction of that one day!
