Yesterday I made a tomato basil tart for dinner with the produce from my garden. I set the dehydrator going to dry some basil and I made up a Greek Salad with my basil, cucumbers and tomatoes from the garden. Today I have more basil to dry and process. I then store it in glass jars I have saved as I use a lot of basil throughout the year. I have some in water so I can keep adding fresh basil to my salads for a little bit longer.
I covered my remaining tomato plants in the garden with remay (spun polyester) to keep them warmer as I am trying to insure the last green tomatoes get a chance to ripen on the vine. It is about 50 but rainy and windy today and temps in low 40's at night so it is good that I put my laundry on the line yesterday!
I brought a rosemary plant in...I just love a roasted chicken with fresh rosemary stuffed between the skin and lemon juice poured over the bird. I just love fresh herbs and try to enjoy them as long as possible plan to harvest more chives and mint hopefully tomorrow.
50 degrees is about as cool as houseplants like so I brought all my houseplants in...but if it gets nice out I will take them out...a little sun helps them adapt to the darker confines of our homes if we take them in and out for a week or so it helps them adapt better.
