I'm not sure what it is about this season - feels better than any other. The herbs and vegetables are doing great and getting lots of use day-to-day. The eggplant and tomatoes have blooms and the start of "fruits" on them.... here are some pics of a few:
bloom on a japanese eggplant - these are great on the grill or in curry
sage and thyme
thai basil - a MUST in coconut curried chicken. yum!
tarragon in a pot that i made nearly 10 years ago from concrete, pearlite, moss and shells.
italian curled parsley
and the yummiest of all: lucy and mabel having fun poolside ;-)
