I had too many tomatoes that weren't totally ripe (since my san marzano plants keep dropping fruit, I try to pick them when they are still slightly green,) and not enough riper ones to can, so I made dinner and it was AWESOME. Our favorite dinner now is homemade pasta with a simple tomato/onion/garlic/and sometimes italian sausage sauce. Delish!
Last week I also cut my basil bumper crop because the wind was so bad that it was just all over the place. We got 6 ice cube trays of pesto, plus 2 cups for Momma Gardener to take home (which she forgot and is stinking up my fridge.)
The fall crops have mostly popped up, and maybe I will get my first spinach. Spinach and I have a love/hate relationship. I love trying to grow it, and it hates me and refuses to do so. I hope it goes better this season.
