Melon in progress.
Country Gentleman Heirloom Corn
Peppers turning red.
Wildflowers that grow at the edge of the woods.
Herb cuttings from the garden. I'll pot these up when they get roots and enjoy the heavenly scent all winter!
Opal and Lime Basil harvested to make Pesto.
Basil in the food processor. Add olive oil, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, garlic and a touch of lemon if you like. Process until smooth and serve with chicken, over tomatoes, on sandwiches, with crudites or crackers, on seafood, pizza or pasta, mixed into soup, or potato salad, or straight out of the jar with a spoon. This stuff is addictive!
Have a beautiful day.
