Since I planted the garden on Easter, it's been boring. Not much to notice. Mainly I've just been watering and waiting (and picking basil, but more on that in a minute)
Until today ...
|the first bell pepper|
|the first tomato (a juliet)|
|the first blackberries|
Well, except I accidentally bought twice the amount of basil that I bought last year. Which means I am making TWICE the pesto. Great for Husband, the pesto lover. I have made 8 cups of pesto this week. On a normal week last year, I was making 2 cups a week! This basil is Husband's dream come true.
It also means I have been buying large amounts of olive oil, parmesan cheese, walnuts and pine nuts! It also means our freezer it filling up with pesto. None of that is a bad thing according to Husband!
