Rain has put my grand plan of laying in the sun and reading a book on soggy hold. So I figured I may as well start planning dinner!

My basil plants have gotten a bit leggy, so they required some aggressive pruning. I’m thinking pistachio pesto tonight, with grilled chicken, since I now have an abundance of basil leaves!

What’s cooking today, GT? How are everyone’s gardens doing this year? Everything on my deck (which is mostly herbs) is doing almost too well, while my vegetable allotment has been disappointing. The pumpkins seem to be okay, but everything else is pretty puny. I’ve been told it’s probably the soil, but good news! next year it will be perfectly composted. 😑

(Max is not at all impressed with this gardening in the rain nonsense!)
