Basil (193/365)

2011 07 12 _MG_3379w
"A man taking basil from a woman will love her always."

Sir Thomas Moore (English, lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman and noted Renaissance humanist. 1478–1535)

TIME:  7:47 PM
PLACE:  Backyard
SUBJECT:  Basil in the raised garden bed

I watered the corn, tomatoes, onions, potatoes and herbs this morning around 9am.  It. was. freakin. hot.  Around 5pm, thunder started to rumble and a little bit of rain fell.  More importantly, the temperature dropped to a balmy 90 degrees.  I went outside around 7ish to pull weeds.  I have a huge fight with a certain vine that invades every area of my yard each summer and chokes things in my garden – HATE the vine!  The temperature dropped even more.  Right now, I’m sitting on my front porch and it’s 77 degrees with a slight breeze.  It’s lovely.
