In spite of the cold spring we are harvesting basil this week. The planting is patchy after losing some plants but there will still be enough for your boxes. We have three varieties... A large curly variety, Genovese. Narrow leaved Lemon Basil and a regular Italian basil. The hoops are there to hold up the fabric cover. Unfortunately the wind has blown it off. The cover plays many vital roles. It keeps bugs away, protects the plants from the windy, shades the plants and keeps them a little warmer on cool days. The result is the best basil we have ever grown. We did this last year and were amazed at the results.
