This will probably be the last of the garden photos on this blog for a while. While most of you are in full swing with your garden, ours is starting to dwindle. We have had ours planted since Easter . . .3 months. Now we just try to keep the perennials from dying in the heat and coaxing the veges along to give us "just a few more". We will probably wait until September to start a fall garden.
This is about the time that we have so many tomatoes that we just can't eat them fast enough. I have a feeling I will be spending the afternoon blanching and freezing tomatoes to use for soups this winter.
This is just one of our three Roma plants along with a total of 18 tomato plants. There is already a basket full of Romas sitting in the house.
I like to make Basil butter then freeze it. Wonderful on bread along with the soup in the winter. I'm not sure I have enough butter for all of this. I have also frozen it in ice cubes to drop into a pot of veges in the winter. Not sure I am up for making Basil cubes today!
This is the purple basil I decided to try this year. Just one plant. Not quite as strong as the other basil but still delish!!
Hope you all have a festive and SAFE 4th of July tomorrow. We'll be going to a church cook-out/softball game. Should be fun!
