It's Summertime in My Garden

And everything is growing. 

I have tomatoes ripening. Some of them we even get to eat (we have a hungry squirrel taking bites out of many of them).

Tomatoes ripening earlier this month

And 6 different types of basil

Purple Opal

Pesto Perpetuo

Aristotle (Small-leafed Italian)



And my cilantro has bolted, so I pulled up the plant to harvest the coriander seeds. We can add coriander to the list of herbs/spices we rarely, if ever, have to buy again (Along with sage, thyme, rosemary, and oregano).

My squash and cucumbers are starting to make fruit as well.

I also pulled up the remainder of my carrots
