I turned on the furnace this week.
I brought my winter clothes out of storage.
I evan wore a winter coat a few days this week.
Now, it has come to this as well...
The basil is being harvested. We've fought the good fight: planting, watering, pruning, covering up on cold nights - but it is time to let it go. :-(
The killing frost most certainly is only a day or two away. So, I will make a couple more batches of pesto and leave the basil to fend for itself out in the garden.
I'm sorry, Basil, I've resigned myself to the inevitable. So long!
