Basil

The only crop that has not really done well for us summer is basil, it looked great when we started summer but with the wettest August since 1917 it has not done a great deal, not all of it died only about half of it did. We have had a week of good weather but it maybe that it has come a little too late for the basil to turn around, it will have to be kale pesto this autumn I think. I have mixed feelings about basil really anyway, I do find it can be too strong raw in food, it works well as pesto and maybe that is it for me.
