July 18, 2011 - Harvest Monday
The basil was starting to flower and needed trimming to make pesto. The sweet and purple basil pesto tasted pretty much the same - the purple may be a little milder than the sweet basil.
Some of the thai peppers are turning red - and it looks like many more will be turning red too. I'm not sure what I want to do with them, so I will have to do some research. The jalapenos also looked like they were starting to turning red too. There was definitely some stink bug damage on the jalapenos. I'm thinking of making pickled jalapenos.
I was also able to harvest some eggplants. I'm thinking of grilling them tonight.
The early girl 50 tomatoes are getting really sweet. They make a great side salad!
