Welcome back to my garden. Today is all about the harvest! I know Ginger modestly told you about all he does to help mom. It's true, Ginger does like helping to pick the harvest.
Here is the basil that
Ginger mom picked in anticipation of making pesto. Mom also picks some parsley to add to the blend. She puts it all in a salad spinner and washes up the leaves and dries them off.
But in the middle of mom's peaceful preparations, I heard her scream!!! Yes, a fuzzy little pal of mine hitched a ride on one of the basil leaves and snuck inside the house. Poor baby got a bit of a bath.
Never fear, Jonesie to the rescue. I stood by and made sure my pal made it to safety. Out of the basil and away from the evil blade of the Cuisinart!
Just in the nick of time too.
I'm proud to say that I grew the basil, parsley and garlic! Mom will think of me and my green paw everytime she makes something with pesto. That makes me purr.
