Welsh Garden April 2011

The weather here has been incredible, its 06.38 am not a cloud in the sky.
This has allowed us to plant like mad, we have not cooked an evening meal inside for the last 10 days. The progress so far its less boring if you clic on view as a slideshow BBQ pictures by Hvar2010 - Photobucket

How does Greek basil compare to Ligurian basil?

I like it better Bill, its got a more pungent taste. I still use the Italian Basil in things like Pesto and Pizza but for tom salads ect we favor the greek

The shallots I've grown are a bit too mild for my taste. In your area, I'd suggest you give garlic chives a try. Garlic chives (Chinese leeks) are a perennial that can survive summer heat averaging 90+F and thrive in the 40 - 70F spring and fall temps and survive 0 deg F. winters.

The garden looks great. I don't remember where you live, but it must be a very mild climate. Dh just built me a garden spot - 4 feet x 10 feet x 10 inches. We purchased the soil today and I can't wait to get planting. I've noticed that many people are planting late this year.
