Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Another Monday

Beans picked on Friday, in the sauce pan ready to steam. Again just enough for two servings.

Gleanings from Wednesday some of which was used in a stir fry.

Tuesday's harvests. We enjoyed the eggplant this year.

All the basil from the garden which I froze. See earlier post.

Freezing basil, what a great idea. I am hoping my potted basil lives on in the house this winter, but if it looks like it is dying I think I will try you idea of freezing it.

Pretty harvest. I freeze basil much like you. But I spread mine on a cookie sheet. Then I break it up and put it in freezer bags.

Very nice harvests. I don't preserve any basil for the winter, I rely on hardy herbs that a grow here in the winter and enjoy the basil when I can pick it fresh.

Looks like you're getting enough garden goodies for some great stir fry! I only freeze basil in pesto cube form. I'm planning on rooting some basil cuttings to grow new plants to grow indoors over winter, so hopefully I'll have a supply of fresh basil during cold weather.

Nice harvest! I have been freezing my basil as individual leaves, but I might try your method if I get more than I know what to do with.

What types are beans are you harvesting? They look much... flatter, I guess, than the types I am growing.
