Through the wet dewy grass and out to the garden I tromped this morning and harvested basil. The rich emerald color was profound. The aroma was heavenly. The sprigs have now been washed and are draining then will be allowed to dry for a hour or so. After that, the fun begins. The food processor will come out of the cabinet and my kitchen will again be filled with the scent of basil. Oh, oh, oh!!!
We also pulled a few carrots, several tomatoes, a bunch of onions, and a trio of lemon squash (which resembles lemons but tastes like the best squash you ever ate). Sounds like we will be enjoying a great lunch...or lupper.
