one more thing – I’ve been putting basil on EVERYTHING this summer. Happy fall is on the way but it only means winter is close too! 😦
We don’t get a lot of variety here in Indy. It seems like its always either sweltering of I’m freezing my nalgas off. But we were lucky this year to have had a veeery mild summer. My first crack at vegetable growing was mostly successful. Next year, I’m going to try squash, tarragon, maybe mint, and a bunch of different varieties of peppers.
There’s just something really satisfying about tending a garden, growing stuff you can eat…but don’t take that as maternal instinct.
