The last of the summer basil

Canberra traditionally has its first frost each year around 25 April (Anzac Day). I planted a couple of clumps of basil over the summer, and have used it from time to time on pizzas and to garnish cheesy eggplant dishes. But any day now the first frost will arrive and the remaining basil would have keeled over, so today I harvested everything that was left in the garden and made some chunky basil, garlic and pecan pesto for dinner.
