Our tomatoes don’t have much more to offer, neither fruit nor flower. Today I heavily pruned while I picked from 5 different plants (2 of which had only 1 tomato). The fall plants are in the nursery and only our celery and long beans are thriving right now. I hope I have time to plant Cipollini onions, shallots, peas and garlic this weekend. I’d also like to get more carrots, lettuce, spinach and radishes planted, as I last planted some 2 weeks ago and I’m trying to get better about my intervals.
And now back to making pesto. Our basil should yield one more crop after this one! (And the new crop doesn’t look great.)
I can’t ever decide which I like more – the first batch of pesto of the season, or the last batch that goes into the freezer that gets used around December for a taste of summer. I am struggling with the changing of seasons, garden and otherwise. I don’t have nearly what I want planted, but I did do a patch of garlic – my first – and can’t wait to see what happens with it next spring!
Enjoy your weekend of planting!
