Summer Garden

Our summer garden is finally enjoying some warmer weather and producing edible treats...

Roma tomatoes.

We finally figured out the pepper plants had to be in large pots - otherwise pesty animals eat them.

Garden gnome watching over tomatoes. Unfortunately all my spinach & swiss chard was eaten by either rabbits or squirrels - not sure which.

Fresh basil.

I made home-made pesto last night using olive oil from my friend Emily's olive trees on her land, basil, pine nuts, garlic, and a little Parmesan cheese. It turned out great!
