Today was a good day.
I went out just before noon and picked all the largish leaves off the basil. Spaghetti and fresh pesto for lunch!
Then tonight I went out and pulled all the rest of the carrots. Filled a 3 quart saucepan with them as I broke off all the leaves. Mind you, I've already harvested a pound or two. From $7 of compost and seeds. Not too shabby. Munched on a few instead of supper.
I still have beets to pull and I'd better do it soon or I won't find them all. Squirrels love the leaves of leaf-beet (that's chard to us Yanks) and beet root. Chased off one little snigglefritz tonight, as a matter of fact.
So it's almost over for this year, but I have all my seeds for next year already.
