* We are racing toward fall. Basil is our canary in a coal mine. It is the most delicate and fragile to the cold. It will be the first crop we lose to the cold. If you’d like additional basil, please do place an order now, to beat the die-off. It’s $5.50 per half pound.

*Summer Squash is nearing the end of its useful harvest life too.
