A long and tedious week for some reason – maybe it was so much gloomy weather and the time sensitive deadlines. Whatever the reason, I ended up with a pretty mediocre week on the bike too. Gratefully, now the weekend is here and my thoughts return to the garden and the endless possibilities. Here’s a nice shot of one of our typical summer salads with our favorite, Yellow Brandywine tomatoes, Italian Red Torpedo onions and our Genovese basil – drizzled with my wife’s delicious balsamic vinaigrette! Our first flush of basil has germinated and is growing under grow lights in the basement. . .Je ne peux pas attendre !
