We took the plunge and went for a half-share of a CSA (community supported agriculture). Ours goes a step further by delivering right to the front door. Today was the first delivery.

I’m not sure I know how to take care of a basil plant but it smells tasty. Not much produce this week but I imagine that changes as the season progresses. I bought local strawberries last week and they tasted quite good, but these are just outstanding.

impressive-looks delicious! for care of the basil plant, try watering it thoroughly then letting it dry out pretty good before watering it again. also make sure that the pot drains well. i do believe basil requires a good amount of direct sunlight.
Thanks for the advice. Are you good at growing stuff?
It all looks like you said. Yummy. What do you do with pea tendrils? Don’t think I’ve had ’em.
Heather is right about watering and letting it dry out. That’s pretty standard for growing things, along with sunlight.
You have probably already eaten them, but I had the MOST delicious pea vines recently – I think they were just sautÃ©ed with a little butter and garlic. Your farm basket looks amazing.
Mmmmm…. that bread looks yummy!
