Can You Spot the Sunshine?
Pea Masterpiece at Burpee
Next surprise from the Burpee booth is a new basil. Scott, the Burpee Home Gardens Program Director, contends that this is a great basil for cooking, for pests, but I LOVED it raw off the plant. It is sharp, and slightly bitter, but it cleanses your mouth on a hot summer day and leaves behind a tingling on your tongue, like icy-hot for your palette. While I can understand folks not liking those qualities, I am totally a fan. I am also the Mom that has taught the kids to eat lemon balm raw from the garden while they are playing, so Take my opinion on this one with a grain of salt. If nothing else, the taste is DEFINITELY a surprise. No link to this one yet...but I will get it for you when I can!
