We took about a week and a half off of paying attention to our garden (beyond watering), and man did it show. So many weeds! We finally took some time yesterday to clear out the weeds, tie up the latest growth on the tomato plants, and generally assess. Generally I think everything is doing pretty well!
We’ve been regularly picking lettuce leaves for salad, and have made one giant batch of pesto so far from the basil. I think we may do more pesto soon to freeze… anyone else done that? Will it freeze well? I’d love to be able to use it year round. I know canning pesto is difficult, so freezing is the only alternative we can think of. Maybe without the cheese?
And speaking of our basil, I’m thrilled with it’s progress! It’s growing like crazy and it’s just so delicious. So amazingly sweet and tasty. It’s been flowering occasionally, but we pick them off as they appear and haven’t noticed any flavour issues.
Otherwise, how is our garden doing:
I can’t wait until we can start picking more than just leafy things. I hope we have at least some zucchini to pick off and take to the cottage in two weeks… fingers crossed!
