A weekend gardener

It does not take very much sunshine to drive me away from the outdoors. I am truly only a weekend gardener. Despite my wimpyness we have harvested fresh onions and cilantro for blender salsa. Yum! The tomato and squash plants are loaded so it is only a few days before we gather a bumper crop and the sweet basil is growing like crazy. If you have never grown sweet basil you should try it. I don't know if another plant smells as wonderful. Besides, it is yummy as well. Spaghetti on the menu for Saturday!

Hello there! Just checking out other sweet basil entries. I just kinda started taking care of one myself.

Just as a tidbit too, I heard the leaves becomes bitter if you don't pinch often and if you let the flowers bloom.
