Home Grown Tomatoes

It's been a good year despite the extended hot temperatures and efforts of one clever and resourceful chipmunk that climbs up our story high deck stairs to eat some of the smaller tomatoes. In between the tomato plants I have successfully been able to grow some basil transplanted from smaller single stems which were leftover from plants purchased at the grocery store. They are now big, full plants. It takes leaves from at least one whole basil plant to make pesto.
