Basil in JUNE

BASIL used to be a crop you could count on for the entire summer. No longer. As the climate changes, the diseases and insects that attack our gardens multiply. Downy mildew in basil was unheard of ten years ago. Now it is a blight that comes up with the winds each summer. Luscious leaves turn black overnight. It’s catastrophic, downright depressing. So don’t wait to get your pesto in the freezer. Available through July 5th.
