Basil and Bees
My Garden: tomatoes (as you have already heard ;), long beans (not sure I will plant these again, not much flavor), thyme, strawberries (these seem to grow all year), red bell peppers, parsley, tarragon, basil, rosemary, lemon balm (not sure what to do with this, it sure smells delicious) and mint (I know what to do with this- mojito’s). I am also starting some potatoes. Of all the plants in the garden, the basil grows the best. Every year it comes back from seed, as did one tomato plant this year- the cherry tomatoes.
The bee in the image is on the basil, he was not alone the day I took this picture (with my micro lens). Bees were happily buzzing all about, as where a few wasps- which I hear are good for a garden.
