The tomatoes are fruiting and I can't wait until they do because I just love fresh tomatoes from the garden with mozzarella, basil and a little olive oil. I just hope my basil doesn't bolt and lasts that long. I am pinching it and drying what I have left over so I am hoping that the bolting will be suspended until after the tomatoes ripen. It really is a game having to play to make sure you get what you need when you want it. I am learning slowly how to play that game.
I love my garden. I get a great sense of satisfaction to see things "growing on" and being able to go out there and pick greens to serve with dinner. I am anxious about the fall planting and making the cold frame so that I can work to harvest all winter long. Because of that plan I have put the majority of lettuces in the center bed so that I can plop the cold frame over them and work from that. Of course I have to work with my husand to get it built and that is always a challenge. Almost as much of a challenge as the garden!
