Garden Update

Depsite the heat and drought we've had a couple of good crops. The basil has been amazing. Very mild this year, but prolific and gorgeous, providing my pesto-loving husband with lots of sauce.
We are still getting a steady stream of Chard.
The cabbage- beautiful, sweet and delicious last year just didn't like the heat.
The broccoli was harvested on Sunday-12 heads of it.

Blanched and freezer ready.
We have been eating it like mad for dinner, lightly steamed; sweet and tender.
