An Update on Our Backyard Garden
We came in from the garden this morning with a handful of tomatoes. That, friends, is something to celebrate.
You see, the cycle of boom and bust continues in our garden. In the month since our last update, we've had substantial growth and a few losses, too.
Let's start with the positive.
The good news is that we have tomato and basil plants galore. The basil is especially doing well -- the plants are huge and no matter how much we pick, there always seems to be more. We have Thai, Genovese, Fine Herb and Purple varieties, and they're all doing well. So now our challenge is to use it. We've been tossing it into all sorts of dishes, making vinaigrettes and pestos (or at least pesto-like sauces). Before long, we'll likely harvest a bunch and freeze it for use this winter.
