In the Summer

Every summer I have a container garden in the small space between the building and the parking lot out back. I grow herbs, Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, Mint, Parsley, and about three or four different kinds of Basil. I also have two cherry tomato plants, two pepper plants, and a bush bean, along with two long planters filled with Arugula and some lettuce.

This bin full of fresh cut basil and some parsley will soon be fresh Basil Pesto!

I'm a huge pesto fan too - mmmmm :) I love grilled chicken with pesto pasta topped a heaping helping of shredded parmesan. I've been known to eat it cold right out the fridge the day after it was made - it's one of those dishes where the flavor is definitely better the second day.
