Snipped a bunch of basil this morning, in the process of drying it right now......the basil is just now starting to bolt, thats the best time to dry it, as it has more oils in the leaves right now.

I haven't even gone out side to look at tomatoes. It rained so I know they don't need water but I best go out and pick after a nap.

Up here in the Nawth (or in MD, which is sorta the Nawth), my snow peas are getting flowers currently. Hopefully I'll be able to pick few soon. Currently there are various young squashy type-veggies, nightshades and okra, but I anticipate a month at least before these are ready to eat.

I am growing a couple of herbs from seed this year: parsley, heliotrope/valerian, horehound, lovage, feverfew and basil. Heliotrope and feverfew are supposedly borderline invasive, but the plants seem to be useful.

Sadly, the germination of all except the parsley has been spotty or non-existent (lovage) so far. The weeds are advancing on the area, which I admittedly prepared a little slackly...but I"m really hoping they'll burst out of the ground soon.

Yeah, I just polished off both the tomatoes and bacon. No bread. Testing to see if restricting wheat will really help joint pain. Was all out of lettuce.
