For the past 3 or 4 days, I've been weeding, mulching, pruning, potting and re-potting.
The front garden is almost done (more mulch arriving today) and out the back (in pots, with no room for a herb garden) I have
4 kinds of basil
2 pots of chillies (which I don't even eat!)
Here is my recipe for a deliciously refreshing drink made with basil and vodka:
a couple of sprigs of basil
a tspn of sugar
a lime wedge
in the bottom of your glass.
add soda water
This is really best with home-grown basil. And a comfy deck chair.
