Happy Friday, everybody!
Do you remember my garden from a few weeks ago? The tomatoes have been faring much better, thanks to regular watering. The end-rot appears to be mostly gone. The basil also benefited from pruning, and has continued to produce for me, although not as much as if I had been faithfully tending them all summer. I have never before had any kind of success with tomatoes, so our first harvest of edible tomatoes was absolutely delicious. It’s true–when they’re home grown, they taste really good. The squash vine produced one amazing, huge butternut squash, but then the rest of the vine had mildew on it, so we pulled it out and planted a fall crop of lettuce and cilantro in its place.
We will be using the garden produce on Monday in this yummy Caprese Couscous side salad to take to a Labor Day cookout with friends. What are you up to this long weekend?
