A couple months ago I wrote about my burgeoning container garden. Well, it was mostly an epic failure. All that survived out of those many tomato seedlings is this one bad boy, who is still hanging on for dear life:
|He's still growing little by little every day. I'll be quite impressed if he actually ends up producing any tomatoes!|
And as for basil...
|The bunch you see to the left is all that's left of the basil I planted months ago. The bigger plant on the right was a store purchase (there's another one too, not pictured). All are growing like wildfire! :)|
|I purchased this lavender plant for the wonderful aroma and beautiful purple flowers that will bloom (and have already started to bud).|
In celebration of Memorial Day weekend, I felt compelled to make some sort of BBQ stable, so I went with this basic pasta salad recipe, with the omission of chickpeas and eggs, and the addition of fresh basil from my garden.
|In the words of Paul, "Can you make this again??? I could eat this all week..."|
|Simple Memorial Day lunch.|
What summer foods are you most excited about?
