Actually this title is a bit of a joke, since having all that wonderful garden produce outweighs anything bad about having a garden. However, I realize it's been a very long time since I've posted one of my garden updates, and I wanted to let you know that all is well with the garden. Above is my kitchen table with one day's pickings of tomatoes, squash, peppers, and cucumbers. Now that I'm teaching school all week, on the weekend I'm busy roasting tomatoes, making roasted tomato pasta sauce with my new food mill, and freezing basil, and those things take priority over photographing the garden. I've been experimenting with freezing some other herbs too, and recently tried freezing Thai Basil. I'll report later on how these experiments turn out.
