Pottering, Courgette Flowers, Basil

Pottering first things in the morning - a drop of water for a plant that looks in need, an item returned to its place, a neglected clock wound up, a yeast dough starter fed with flour and a little warm water.

Courgette flowers: you can lightly fry them until they go limp, plunge them into batter and deep fry them for a minute or two until the batter is golden brown, or shred them raw and strew them over a salad.

Cutting sweet basil when it has reached several inches in height, and enjoying the smell before anything else.
