The Basil in our Pick Your Own (PYO) field is ready to be cut! Everything else in the PYO field is still in the growing process and is NOT ready to be picked. If you want to harvest some basil this is how it's done.
In the picture above it explains to cut above a section of leaves on the Basil stem. Do not cut below a section of leaves because that does not encourage new growth as shown in the picture below.
Poison Ivy Protection
If you ever feel like you are exposed to poison ivy on the farm please use the Poison Ivy Protection. An example where poison ivy would be is in our blueberry patch. Protect yourself by using the Poison Ivy Protection that we will have on the sign in table.
It was given to us by a friend of the Farm. It is an organic product that many people use. All you have to do is take a little dab of the product and rub it on your exposed skin. Once the product dries you are ready!
Seven Grain Bread for $5 a loaf.
