Chris and I desperately wish that we were good gardeners... but we just aren't. Every year we start off really enthusiastic, but then things get busy, we forget about our gardens, things get overgrown, weedy, they die, it's all very sad. This year we've worked a little extra hard at maintaining the few plants that we chose, and it seems to be paying off. Who knew, if you water them, they will grow! Today for lunch we had our first meal of home grown tomatoes (a few different varieties) basil and parsley, all form our very own garden. The bocconcini, prosciutto, lettuce, olive oil and balsamic vinegar were from the grocery store. It was all delicious!
