A nice basketful ...

We got another load of tomatoes and peppers out of the garden this evening. Cayennes and Anaheims on the peppers.

The work we put into building up the soil is paying off. This spot used to be a parking spot next to the garage. It was covered with pea gravel. The lads shoveled all that off the ground three years ago. We have been mixing in all the leaves from the fall, and a trailer load of horse manure from Tab Ramsey's corrals over on Road BB and 23. This has had a very good effect.

Our pasta sauce this evening was full of chunks of our squashes and tomatoes, with a bit of Italian sausage. It was most excellent. Steverino cooked the pasta to a perfect al dente.
