Goodbye Summer

Today I picked every last leaf off the basil plants. More than picking the last of the tomatoes, more than harvesting the melons, more than the pumpkins finally ripening, the picking of all the basil signifies the end of Summer to me. The plants can’t come back from such a thorough picking. The season is over.
