The garden has been coming along and is kicking up it's production now. My plum tree has gone from dormant to productive. This is the first picking of ripe plums (about 1.8 pounds).
My Thai basil is wanting to flower. I snipped back the stems to allow for more leave growth. I really wanted to let it flower since the flowers are a deep and beautiful purple. I'm off to look for interesting recipes for my Thai basil.
Another first for this summer. My first cherry tomatoes!! It's always exciting when that happens!
