presto pesto

 our neighbor gave us that basil plant from his hydroponic system and i was able to make 4.5 batches of pesto from it.... that's a whopping 9 cups of basil from this one plant! i used this recipe omitting the salt, pepper and only using 1/3 cup of olive oil. i love that it only contains a few ingredients and it's perfection on a cracker!

garden envy

our neighbors (and dear friends) have the most fabulous garden every year. it's large, meticulous & this year innovative!

let's compare: Mine... onions, spinach, zucchini, tomatoes and peppers

Theirs: peas, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, various herbs, flowers, spinach, lettuce, bok choy, winter melon, bitter melon, water melon, onions, strawberries (and probably 20 other things i've forgotten) this year Leighton has gotten very crafty and invented this hydroponic system that grows strawberries, herbs & even lettuce without soil. strawberries with out bits of dirt are quiet amazing!

and then we have May imitating me snapping a million pictures
