We've been having a lousy year in the garden -- still only a couple of tomatoes and zucchetta instead of the huge bounty that you're supposed to have in August. A week ago we scored big -- my friend K got sick of me whining about my tomatoes and brought me a huge haul of goodies from her garden (and even a bit from her neighbor's garden).
That got us through the week very happily, but now we're back to whining.
But we did have one good harvest: enough basil for a big batch of pesto. I wrote last fall about how I process basil and freeze it. It was nice to get a good pesto/pasta meal out of the garden, plus extra to put away for later.
