Re: Rain, rain, and basil


Scaredy terrorizes lizards?
I was emptying some containers to reuse soil the other day in late afternoon and a 4 inch pot tipped over and a toad popped out. shouldn't he have already been busy about the yard collecting insects and such rather than sleeping? Or are they nocturnal? I did apologize for disrupting his snooze.

I grow some sweet basil in the lathhouse, but mostly Thai or African because they seem to take the heat better and not bolt as quickly.

And it's raining now--Florida rush-hour shower--that the cats have asked me to stop so they can get back to terrorizing lizards and such.

That can't be good. I hadn't heard about that one before, hope I don't get
unlucky with it - I try to grow a lot of sweet basil. I'm not as fond of the
other types.

It may be that you got some infected seed, since it's the Sweet Basil
that
disappeared. Even the tested seed isn't 100% safe, I'm told.

Daryl,
Thanks for the info. I have Asian basil and sweet basil in one large
pot.
The Asian is growing like mad, the sweet already disappeared. I have
never
had this problem with sweet basil, I also was late planting this year.

Usually I plant at beginning April. I might have avoided all this by
planting earlier so the basil would have had a good root system before
the
deluge.

Oooh, you *are lucky. You must have really good drainage in your
garden
beds.

With regard to the basil- if you lose all of the leaves, check for
wilt.
It's a fairly new fungus that's taken out a lot of fields here,
especially in wet spells.

Here's a bit from NCSU. "A devastating basil wilt disease caused by a

soilborne pathogenic fungus, Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. basilicum, was

first discovered in the U.S. in 1991 and identified in N.C. in 1992.
Plants infected with this disease usually grow normally until they
are
six to twelve inches tall, then they become stunted and suddenly
wilt.
Initial symptoms usually include brown streaks on the stems,
discoloration of the internal stem tissue, and sudden leaf drop.
Interestingly, only sweet basil is affected. Some of the specialty
basils, such as lemon basil and purple basil, show some resistance to
the
disease"

I gave up growing Basil because of it. I apparently got some infected

seeds and it wrecked the bed that I used for Basil.
