Ginny Grant enjoys the last days of summer with the harvest of late-season veges.

The hot days of summer are slowly changing, the nights are cooling off and, depending on where you are, there might be a decided nip in the air. If you have a home garden you may well be dealing with a glut of tomatoes and zucchini, picking and drying oregano, freezing batches of basil pesto (minus the cheese) and you may have been eating green beans for days. Late summer is lush and abundant and the meals we eat tend to be, too; sometimes they have more heat or richness when required; some still suitable for outside grazing and making the most of good weather and the last of the seasonal vegetables.
