Sweet summer basil with Salmonella

I love fresh basil.

Last night we had barramundi fillets, grilled in a garlic-butter-olive oil-lemon-and-basil coating that was delicious.

Unfortunately, the fucking possums in this country also like my basil and are helping themselves to it, bottom up.

They don’t care for the mint (in the background, and yes, that is our view from the deck).

Maybe we should stop feeding the cats so they will become a little more aggressive about chasing away the possums.

In New Zealand, they poison possums.
