In the garden, the warm weather has allowed another handful of Jelly Bean tomatoes to ripen on the vine. The plants themselves are looking pretty sorry and bare, but as long as the tomatoes stay edible, I won't complain.
In addition to the Jelly Bean tomatoes, this week's harvest included several more ripe cayenne peppers, a few sugar snap peas, one small radish and some green beans (both green and golden). The green beans were our first harvest from the bush beans currently growing in the indoor grow box, so we were pretty excited to add green beans to the list of our grow box vegetables.
I also harvested two salads' worth of baby lettuce. I don't know why they look so pale in this picture, but they looked normal in person.
Oh, I also harvested another serving's worth of asian greens. I might have had two servings' worth, but the cabbage worms took their share before I got there. I know, because I picked 15 fat and happy cabbage worms off of my greens. Well, they were probably happy before I picked them off and drowned them in a container of water.
Bok Choy: If this is not rude, I don't know what is.
I also tackled the mass of basil growing in the garden. Basil is probably the number one thing that grew like weed in the garden this year. Next year, I will grow fewer plants.
Here's about one pound of basil. I made a triple batch of pesto, and am currently in the process of air-drying the rest of the basil leaves for future consumption.
