Summer Garden Minestrone

It was a pleasure today snipping fresh herbs from the garden. I made a pot of minestrone using
not only parsley, thyme and basil, but added a nice zucchini and a couple tomatoes.  Oh, and a sprig of mint for my iced tea.  We are all enjoying these nice days as the maple trees are showing hints of red and gold.

Salad Greens - at last!

At long last my pot of lettuce is ready to eat. It sits on a bench on the deck where Bunny can not reach.  It made a tasty salad for lunch yesterday along with a fresh blueberry muffin.

However, leaves on my tomato plants were being stripped.  It took a couple of days of searching but
I found the culprit.  Tomatoes are beginning to ripen, but it will be a while.  Gardening is a challenge, but so worth the effort!
