Basil –  in a jar (filled with water) at room temperature.  Edible, decorative &  aromatic!

Greetings Members,

It feels like summer with the heat and humidity – which the pepper, tomato, watermelon, and other heat loving plants will love and need to grow.  Overall the plants look healthy and we are staying busy pulling weeds – in particular thistle.

Anticipated Harvest: Potatoes, basil, rainbow chard, kale, collards, carrots, zucchini, cucumber, head lettuce, salad mix,

Have a great week!

Blessings,
