Summer time thing

June 12, 2021 – Basil on tomato

The garden is now producing big time, so most every meal features tomatoes …

Even these simple scrambled eggs were elevated into something special …

Of course, we’re not the only ones eating from the garden …

but talk about inspiration for a patch!

And lest I forget, Meg’s Basil Vinaigrette has been an amazing accompaniment. No pictures, but trust me, this recipe is awesome!

  1. LA – home grown veggies taste just that bit better – even if in part shared with wildlife. Your production is hitting it’s strides as our veggie garden pretty much shuts down for winter.Go well. B


  2. I’m wondering… do you still use a half-eaten, holey basil leaf? I’m never sure if I should or not.


  3. Lucky that I have had dinner because I swear I could reach right in and eat your red tomato with green basil leaf patch! We put basil on many foods, I love tomato sandwiches on crusty bread slathered with olive oil and then basil leaves on top of the tomatoes. Pesto is one of my most favorite pasta toppings. I throw basil leaves into salads and we even put basil leaves in lemonade. The basil in lemonade is not my idea; years ago I watched Giada De Laurentiis do this on the Food Network and have been hooked on this ever since.


    1. this is absolutely ruining me … don’t know what I’ll do when the summer heat wipes out the tomato plants, but meantime we’ll eat them every day
