I have been looking out my kitchen window at the mass of basil going to seed at a rate of knots. My friends tell me that it doesn't taste as sweet once it's gone to seed, so I've been reticent to make pesto for fear of it being too bitter...
But now I've been watching the bees. We've had a bit of a slow bee season round here... not sure why... anyone?
Our pumpkins took ages to develop fruit, and I hear that we weren't the only ones.
So it is with delight that I bring you these portraits of some of our little garden helpers... and trust me, I need all the help I can get in the garden...
Don't you love the way these bees have got their heads totally covered in the pollen... it's dirty work... but they seem pretty happy doing it.
Thanks little workers. I am just hoping now that the frosts hold off a little longer and our small crop has the chance to fatten up ready for... you guessed it, pumpkin soup... if we've got to have this cold weather, then we must have wholesome comfort food!
