Basil and Tomatoes and a Recap
Is there a better combination of foods to pair than fresh basil and tomatoes? The complementary colors and flavors excite the senses. The subtle anise aroma of the tender basil leaves. The brilliant deep reds of the tomatoes, and their plump, round shape, smooth to the touch. The symphonic balance of herbal nuance and sweet acidity.
Ed’s digging for potatoes.
And finding them.
A bounty of beets finds us juicing them daily, and we still have not exhausted the crop, with a second planting’s seedlings beginning to thrive.
We had only a small excess of sweet peas, which will be dried and planted next spring.
And so it goes. So far this year’s garden has been an unmitigated success and everything we have planted has produced bountifully indeed. Our tomatoes are beginning to blush and soon we’ll have stories of their harvest and our canning of the fruit.
