Now if Meade can organize some salad dressing too, you are home free.

What would gardeners do without plastic?

That is a morally serious clump of basil. Great way to grow it.

My basil

I also have cilantro, thyme, dill and oregano. Hard to see but it's there behind the basil. Had parsley, damn rabbits.

What do you do with all that basil? Make and freeze pesto for over the winter?

Pesto. What you can't eat, you freeze or give to people you love, who will then love you.

Pesto won't fix everything, but it damn near does.

Good work, Meade. Nicely done. Saving that picture for a couple of ideas to steal.

If this thing had a proper edit feature, you wouldn't get so many reposts like this you know.

yammer, yammer, yammer...

If that's chaos, my garden workspace is a nuclear explosion.

Lovely photo. @mikee I was just going to say, if that's Meade's organized chaos, his just-plain-organized must be downright Prussian.

Meade seems to have a certain vegetable magnetism.

You should return those balls to the neighbor's kids

Fun fact - You can take a basil cutting, put it in a couple inches of water, and it will root faster than you can say "Bob's your uncle!"

I start rooting some every month after I first put it out and always have young robust plants all summer with no extra cost.

Last time I moved I found lots of frozen pesto that was 5 years old. It was god awful. What a waste! Now I make sure to eat every bit the following winter. Thanks for the cutting info Rick Turley. I'm headed out to start a couple right now.

Brandenburg Concertos for 1 piano 4 hands, transcribed by Max Reger long ago, is now up on youtube here. Blows me away.

Two young ladies made a CD of them.

I used the Reger transcriptions in the late 70s to play them on a PDP11/40, using a D/A converter that was meant for graphics but got enlisted in my project. Reger just wanted to make the available for hearing on the home piano, back when everybody played the piano.

I'm with McCullough - glass balls in a garden, gack! Nix!

Found on the US coast after crossing the Pacific on their own. We think they're pretty cool.
