Fruitful summer .

I am so happy!
This is the first summer since the kids were born that I have a garden again. 
I was lucky enough to share a plot in a community garden with my friend Alta.

It is really just the right size and although I did not spend as much time there as I should have we are now eating from that little patch.

I have made pesto twice! And tonight has a great pesto , mozzarella and onion pizza with a salad of mustard greens,butter lettuce and cherry tomatoes. The corn is from Allandale farm.(love them!)

I also managed to make peach jam.(from the store) I did not use pectin and added ginger . This is a trick I learned form my Mom and  Grandmother. It really gives a great taste to the jam.

Hope you all had a great summer.
