Jay - So hilling an early potato like yukon gold that late pays off 
in yield? Frankly, I'm giving upl on seeing friable soil for hilling 
this year. Two days of no rain and temps in the 80's and plenty of 
sunshine and my soil was pretty much pudding all day today. (someone 
tell me: does basil hate too much water? ) Thanks --Allan in WV
