I wear gloves when working with any chile hotter than a jalapeno.  You should too.  And if I cant convince you, maybe THIS will.

No Known Cure

basil-dm-leaves-under-08_62The scourge of basil growers everywhere has struck. I have planted basil plants a half dozen times this season and watched as every plant has yellowed, then turned brown and shriveled up.  After noticing the latest batch (one week in!) start to turn. I turned to the interwebs and googled “basil fungus” and sure enough.  Downy Mildew….and no known cure.  I guess I should be glad I’m not a basil farmer.


Here’s a link to some more info, photos, reporting/monitoring

On the surface this would seem to be a good idea, and I’m for anything that supports family farms.  But, does this leave the farmer to beholden to food producers?  I really don’t know.  But I do know this, you didn’t come here for answers to life’s big questions.

I was raised to never, ever, ever refrigerate tomatoes.  But I also find the folks in The Food Lab to be extremely accurate.

  • It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  Well the first BLT of the summer made me think of posting.  That and paying the bill to keep jerzeetomato.com for another year.
