My tomatoes...finally!

My little cherry tomatoes are finally ready to be eaten! I've been waiting for about 2 months for the plant to sprout my little red friends and it looks like I've got 3 ready to pop in my mouth....I guess I couldve gone to the store and bought a package in about 5 minutes but I have a feeling these little guys will taste a lot better...  :)

my basil is doing decent too! I'd like to attempt to make a pesto and jar it, but have no idea how. So far I've just been adding the leaves to pizza, sauce and sandwiches. Anyone out there have a good pesto recipe??

  1. That's fantastic! My tomato plants are about 4 inches tall now lol- maybe because I started them from seeds just last month? I have no idea what I'm doing! The basil is about 6 inches now, but I don't know what to do with it. How can I eat basil w/o tomatoes??

  5. My grape tomato plant is getting full and a few of them are about to become ripe! I love fresh basil, too, and I have them growing in my herb garden.

  6. I make a basic pesto recipe and then put it into little freezer bags and store them in the freezer. I can then take out a bag at a time for pizza base, pasta sauce etc.
    My actual recipe for pesto is in my head but I think you can find one on the web. I add basil, olive oil, pine nuts and sometimes parmesan. Yummy!
