For various reasons outlined in previous Fenton Friday posts, I have been very behind planting this summer. The basil seedlings went in only three weeks ago, but they are thriving and I've already pinched them back twice now. I hope to have them big enough by next week so the interns and I can make a nice fresh pesto for our weekly lunches.
I am also picking tomatoes from my garden like crazy -- about 2 cups of cherry-sized fruit a day -- and I'm missing a lot of them as the overripe ones fall off the stems and roll away.
How is your edible garden growing this week?
