We have a short growing season up here in Descanso. In fact, it was 33 degrees last night, on June 15. That keeps the veggies stunted.

Still, we enjoy the veggies and herbs and berries we grow during the summer. My favorite herb, hands down, is basil. I love the flavor and the endless array of dishes it enhances.

I just found these tips on growing basil – some I knew, some I didn’t. Hope your summer garden is taking off.
