basil on ice

This is what happened to my basil last year.

By this time last May the purple and green basil I had started from seed was about 4 inches tall, and I had just pinched back the top four leaves of each plant so that they would branch out and get bushy.

Unfortunately, out of the blue, a freak hailstorm hit with out warning - very unusual in Wisconsin. By the time I realized what happened it was too late - my basil was pummeled! The only good thing that came out of this is that we were blessed with tortellini with fresh pesto butter for supper. This year, I'm watching the sky and the weather more intently.
