There are quite a few mystery plants still growing who knows what vegetables out there, but so far "our" harvest has been amazing. Basil. Cilantro. Zucchini. Tomatoes that are as bright and sweet as a peach. And one of my personal favorites, fresh mint. I eat mint two ways: either chopped into a salad of lettuce, cilantro, cucumber and tomato with fresh lemon squeezed on top as the dressing, or tucked inside my glass of lemonade. Maybe the school year has already started and we're barreling toward fall, but a tall glass of lemonade with mint tastes like summer time!
I love home grown vegetables and herbs so much that if Jeremy ever dies in a tragic bus accident I might be forced to actually go outside and get my hands dirty. But until then, I can look out over our little patch of garden while seated here at the computer, and there is a tall glass of minted lemonade on the desk next to my elbow. This is the gardening life for me!
