This summer has probably been the wettest I remember. We’ve had rain on a constant basis, and when it rains we’re getting around 40mm each time. Most of my plants on the balcony have already withered and died due to too much water – but the basil plants? They’re thriving.
Something has been feasting on them (slightly) so tonight I harvested a bunch and turned it into delicious garlic pesto. The entire house smells amazing and I can’t wait to create a dish with it (probably chicken).
