Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Happy birthday, maracatu!

I am sick with jealousy especially because you ate all that beautifully ripe papaya we can see in the photo. And soon you'll have fresh avocadoes and... aarrgghh!

One thing I can grow lots of in summer is basil, and I can confirm that you should nip off the flowers. Once the plant flowers, the leaves become coarser in texture and flavour.

Same for Basil here - and I add the flowers to my salads, they taste good too.
