The garden, she is a-growin’

The other night roomie and I both made parts of dinner, and I made risotto with some fresh parsley from the garden and she used fresh rosemary on the chicken. Her green pepper plant has finally produced a pepper (it really does get too hot here in summer for much to grow), and I’m going to use it to attempt to recreate this amazing giant-lima-bean salad that I get at Wild Oats (when I successfully recreate it, I’ll post the recipe). The jalepeno plant is doing better in its new spot, so well that in a couple of days we’re going to have a bowl full of jalepenos. Not sure yet what to make with them, but it’ll be fun experimenting. The basil is growing so quickly that it’s about time to harvest a bunch, and you know what they say…when life hands you tons of basil, make pesto. Heh. ;-)

The orange butterfly is visiting daily now, and a small toad has taken up residence in my thyme plant. I’ll try to get decent pics. ;-)

We’re having an overcast day, which is nice in that I can get outside a bit earlier today without roasting. There are ferns to divide and replant, new beds to create, a yard to en-garden…bwahaha.

Er, not that I’d completely envelop roomie’s yard with plants. Of course not. I have to leave room for the pool and the firepit, you see…

  1. You know, when you just sort of toss it out there that you’ve made risotto, you make me want to try it. Got any good recipes?? :)

  2. It takes careful planning…but it will all fit!
    Parsley risotto, good idea!
