Good day on this cool and soon to be cloudy (possibly rainy) Friday. Got seven trays of basil yesterday and stuffed a quart jar with the dried leaves. That will probably be the last basil for this year. Next year I will put in only one plant. I probably got more basil than we will use over the winter. I used fresh for all of my stewed tomatoes and tomato sauce. I try for sufficiency rather than excess--I plant what I hope will produce enough for the winter and spring.
This Firedoglake opinion piece is right on the money and needs no comment from me.
