Lynne cuts the basil and makes Pesto. It's REALLY GOOD! It's basically a combination of the basil-leaves, pine-nuts, fresh-grated Parmesan-cheese and Olive-oil... pureed in a blender. We have it with "Agnolotti"..(similar to ravioli) and it's to die for... wrote:

Hurt like the devil and was getting better after 3-4 days i thought / got out yesterday and worked on some trimmers (customers ) and then decided to tie up some my mators and pick ones ready >>> Back to square one this morning << not good !!

Geez... I hope you're feeling better buddy. Those cukes sound delicious! We're a long way from ripe maters yet.. but they're coming along nicely!

Baby "Big-Boys" coming..




Here's a few photos showing where "sucker-shoots" were pinched-off.. and healed-over.





Lots of flowers coming!!!

3-week update..

Post  roddie on Sun Aug 06, 2017 1:33 pm

Maters and basil...



The plants are now really top-heavy.. with tons more flowers coming. I decided to bungee the wire-cages to the deck railing.



They blew-over in a thunderstorm this past week. Luckily no branches broke.. but the biggest tomato fell off.




Here's the basil..



It's starting to produce flowers.. so I pinched-off those stems. Lynne will be making more pesto soon! I need to buy more pine-nuts, olive-oil and a block of parmesan cheese. She said if Roddie wants fresh parmesan.. the Roddie's going to have to "grate-it".. Laughing That's ok.. it'll be worth it.

2018 garden

Post  roddie on Sun Aug 12, 2018 2:42 pm

Fast forward to the 2018 growing-season. I'd started tomato, bell pepper and basil seedlings indoors, last March. Most of the seedlings germinated and grew.. but the available "natural light" was minimal in the room where they were growing. I ended up with just a handful of plants.. out of over 100 seedlings planted. I've never used "grow-lamps".. but they may be in order for next year. Our house has small windows.. and is surrounded by trees; who's foliage blocks-out most of the available sunlight needed for starting seedlings successfully.

This year; I have "two" gardens actually. One is off-site in my hometown of Franklin, MA. My mom has participated in their community-garden for the last few years. This year; we both have plots.

Here's a photo I took of my plot; just after planting it on June 24th..



My mom has been attending to my plot.. since my recent re-employment.

A very few of the seedlings that I started "here" at home in N. Smithfield, "hobbled-along".. far enough to try trans-planting. At that point; I wasn't even sure what I had for plants. They weren't very healthy.. but they were hanging-on.

We have minimal "topsoil" here at home.. so we've been planting single-plants in containers. We bought some "bargain" plants in flats at the local store.. on the "cheap".. and added those to the seedlings I planted that survived...

The "home-garden" (containers) is coming-along nicely.. Roma tomatoes.. and assorted-color Bell-peppers.. (grown mostly from seed..) The "Roma" tomato is Pear-shaped.. and is best for making gravy.

A neat tomato that was given to me last year was Black from Tula. This tomato appears to look rotten when ripe. Excellent canning and flavor. It starts out dark green and gets a bit dark red in spots quickly turning purplish black. A very hearty tomato. https://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/60425/

not sure that I could harvest/eat a black-skinned tomato Ken.. but the images on the web-link that you provided, show the fruit looking very "pink and juicy" inside. Kinda' gets me a little excited.. Laughing
