Pesto…It’s What’s For DInner

And lots of it…the basil started to bolt a little, so i chopped it down and made a huge batch of pesto.  Most of it will get frozen since there’s only so much pesto one can eat in a week!  I’ll spread it out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, so it freezes in a thin layer.  Once it’s frozen, break it up into smaller useable portions, and bag it for freezer storage.

The green beans are coming in very quickly as well: those are for dinner next week.

    Hey Ry – enjoy the pesto. I made some with cashews instead of pine it’s last year. It was good!

    My beans and cukes are coming in insanely fast. I hope they keep producing. I think my first cucumber will be ready any day now. Wondering Iif you know how long it takes for the beans to be ready from when they are those first little signs of themselves after they flower. Some are about an inch or so long and a mm wide. I’m so stoked. Am finally uploading pics post and will send the link.

    Oh hey – there is a chance I’ll be coming around the end of August. What would be for dinner? 😉
