Ahhh... can't you just smell it? This basil, called Profumo di Genova that I wrote about here, lived up to its name nicely. It had great color, fragrance and flavor. It's another Renee's Garden item and I remembered fondly why I favor their products so much when we enjoyed this tossed with some linguini.
In early July I went ahead and harvested these Rainbow Radishes called Easter Egg II from Renee's Gardens. Although they are a cooler weather crop I decided to give them a try in a windowbox-type container and planted them up in early May. Considering the warm temperatures they tasted pretty good -- I prefer them spicy -- although they were meager-sized.
