Rhubarb and more basil

The sweltering continues this week, with daily temperatures above 30C! The garden is loving it but I am having to water a fair bit, especially the intensively planted beds.

The rhubarb is still putting out lots of stalks so I chopped some down (it was shading the basil) and jarred it to top oatmeal in the winter.

The basil also got a further thinning. This batch I froze in oil for salads. Next up will be some pesto.

I expect we're about to enter the Saskatoon season which means more jamming. Cooler weather (and maybe even rain) seems imminent which is hopeful!
