I planted tomatoes and peppers, along with squash and bean seeds, thinking they’d be a nice bonus for our veggie-gardening prone summer renters.
Well, it looks like I’ll be harvesting the tomatoes, beans, and squash myself. I’ve already harvested LOTS of basil that I planted for the second set of renters, now looking for another place as we’re still here.

I’m basically OK with this. It’s a familiar summer warm-season gardening dance, even as the darn collards and kale persist (not to mention the beet greens).
There’s nothing to complain about — when you have fresh young succulent basil growing. I like to grow it in containers or flats as a cut and come again herb — keeping the leaves and stems succulent and tasty.
