More backyard goodness

It still hasn't stopped raining.  Today we were supposed to have monsoons all day, starting before dawn.  When I got up at 7:00 and it was still dry, I went out back to get some time in the garden.

This was before I made my coffee.

This is very unusual.  Very.

I fed the chicken, hilled up the potatoes (they're growing like weeds, plus all the rain has been washing the soil back), picked a half pint of blueberries, a few strawberries and then happened to look at the garlic bed on my way back inside.

Yikes.  Last time I checked, the garlic was getting nice and tall, but this morning there were scapes waving all over the place.  Not for long.

Dinner tonight: goat cheese ravioli with backyard basil/garlic scape pesto.


That is all.

If you are going to start talking about "backyard goodness" (which I love) then you better darn tootin' throw in a recipe now and then!! Pesto recipe please :D

I sew a lot but I also am a mini homesteader. I have my small garden plot and a mini orchard (ha) of one apple tree, one apricot tree and one nectarine tree. Jealous of the chickens.
