What I also didn't know was that for the anise hyssop, you want to harvest before they flower, which I didn't do. Didn't know. So for the better part of the summer, I've at least enjoyed the purple spikes on the anise hyssop. So did the bees, until some unknown (to me, anyway) species of bee aggressively chased them off, but even that was okay because there were basil flowers right next door. I should have been on top of those too, or I would still have basil to harvest. As it was, the bees had more fodder.

So next year, the anise hyssop gets harvested before it flowers, and the basil gets pinched regularly so that it keeps making leaves.
And I move on to learning something else the hard way. Bound to.
Note: I'll have a post on the solar PV in a few days. It's getting installed this week.
