We finally pulled the plug on the basil. It was under some plastic for the last few weeks and did remarkably well. But it was time to harvest it. Mmm... pesto! Have you had Pesto Chicken Tomato Feta Pizza? Beary good.
Pretty good basil harvest here...
Our tomatoes are still happy under their plastic sheet. They are turning red at a nice rate.
And this... this is our accidental tomato plant (1 plant) that is growing along the wire fencing on the side of the garden compound.
We also harvested the last of the red cabbage... and all of our delicata squash. The delicata was accidental... and tastes like butternut but better.
We also picked the last of the yellow beans. These are going to be seeds for next year.
And... a massive carrot!! Or one could think that based on how wide it is...
But it was only 4-5 inches long. Oh well... They still taste amazing. Oh... and that garlic... well, we are planting garlic today! But first... we need to build a new garden bed.
Which meant a trip to a local sawmill where they sell rough-cut cedar straight off the green chain. Excellent. For $72, we got five 2x6x12 pieces. Just what we were looking for. Next time we'll have to take grampa along... he used to work in a sawmill and we think he might be like an old warhorse once he sniffs the wood!
Here we go... the cedar smells great.
And the garden plot is ready to go....
*** saw... saw... hammer... drill... saw... grumble.... drill... saw...***
And... voila!!! A new garden bed. That was quick.
We'll have to get more soil for the other side next time.
And then it was garlic planting time... 32 hard neck cloves went in the ground and 8 soft neck cloves...
There we go... garlic is all planted and watered!
Now it's time for a break... I think they should make a beer called Thirsty Bear!!!
