I had my first Caprese salad tonight with my homegrown basil (I eat them like crazy all summer long) - sure wish I had my own tomatoes, they're still just 8 small plants but they DO have flowers on them, crossing my fingers I get a better crop than last year. In my "garden" I have some bell peppers, two of which have 2 small gonna-be-peppers on them about the size of a marble, my lettuce is growing very well too! And tomorrow I will plant 7 different peppers in varying degrees of hotness since Tom loves cooking spicy. Oh - and my poor little key lime tree that I have drug in and out of the house now for several years has a bumper crop of a couple dozen limes on it, normally I only get enough to squeeze into a beer or two!
In honor of my little garden heres a ditty for you, not sung by Ricky Nelson, but his 3 sons and what a fine job they did - I think dad would be proud .
