Basil galore

The greenhouse is full of masses and masses of basil. The smell on a warm day is phenomenal. I am picking and using it by the bowlful: at supermarket or garden centre prices probably about £2 each time.
Whenever I have tried to grow it outside it has been devoured by slugs and snails, so I am delighted with this crop. It is almost making up for my dismal failure with coriander. Don't know what I am doing wrong there...But let's not dwell on that. Let's think instead about all that basil, and the tomatoes which are ripening just in time to go with it. Shame this isn't smell-a-vision.
