weedy wednesday: adding + ripening

This past weekend I made a small enhancement to our little patio garden:

One basil plant from Trader Joe’s. Buying a bunch of basil alone is $1.00, buying a plant is $2.99. So if we use basil on three occasions, we’ll break even! Also, it smells like basil every time I step outside now, which is surely worth something. I’ve already nipped off a few leaves and mixed them in with a big medley of bell peppers, zucchini, and eggplant…even if I’m not growing much this year, I’m still enjoying the fruits of the season to the max!

Meanwhile, the tomatoes continue to ripen:

We’re up to just a little over a pound actually harvested, but I expect that number to start skyrocketing up any day now!
