About once a year something goes into the garden that I know nothing of until Jed tells me we are harvesting it. This week when he dictated the crop list to me over the phone and he said "Holy Basil" I thought we had a crop the flea beetles decimated. I figured you were getting basil which was full of holes! Glad I was wrong.
We are growing a handful of specialty basil varieties this year.
Lemon Basil: zingy and flavor PACKED!
Thai: Strong anise taste.
Purple:it makes the prettiest pesto you ever saw!
Holy Basil: Spicier then most with a mild peppery taste.
We are growing all of these in the greenhouses along with our standard favorites of Genovese, Itailian Large Leaf and Nufar. The "specialties" will be rotated around to the different sites all summer. We will not be able to harvest enough for the whole CSA to get them in the same week, but we keep careful records and will make sure each flavor makes an appearance at each site!
We are excited to tuck the first 2 shares in before summer is officially here on Tuesday the 20th at 10:24 pm! The garden is growing really well. The greens are incredibly tender right now. The collards are perfect for using as a wrap for your favorite veggie concoctions. The bok choy is also some of the most tender and juicy we have seen. The spicy mix is big this week! You can use it as a braising green. Pile it on a hamburger for some extra kick, or saute' and add to a grilled cheese! You can also mix it into your Cosmic Mix!
