..basil! I just cleaned off the last of the basil bushes. My vegetable garden is nearly cleared. The last things hanging on are leeks, a few red onions, buttercup squash, Japanese eggplants, tollie, hot Hungarian and anchillo peppers. I don’t have the heart to take them out before the very last veggies ripen. Hey, there are loads of sweat and tears in that garden. My brussels sprouts, swiss chard and red cabbage are still bearing goodies.
I have a sink full of basil that I’ll be making pesto to freeze and I finished steaming the last lacinato kale to freeze for soups later this winter.
