Here is the basil before I cut it back. It was getting very overgrown and starting to fall over into the path. I am going to try and dry it since we tend to use basil often and maybe try my had at making pesto. We will se how that turns out.
The next picture is after. Looks kind of sad but it will sprout out soon. I have always read that for herbs the more you cut it back the more it grows.
