Basil has been one of the big draws all summer at Dimond Hill Farm in Concord.
“We give a sprig away for every customer who buys something,” says Yianna Coliandris, who works at the farmstand.

A Mexican lime shortage had some NH bar owners worried.
Margaritas, mojitos, gin and tonics... when you think of summer drinks, there's probably a lime in the picture. But up until a few weeks ago, this summer looked pretty grim – at least lime-wise.
“We were paying $50 a case to begin with,” says Jim Derosiers, “and then they jumped up to $150 a case and $175 a case.”
Desrosiers is the bar manager at Poco's Bow Street Cantina in Portsmouth. Every week, Poco's goes through about 15 cases of 250 limes each.
