My garden is abundant right now... Giving me her bounty, so much so, that's it hard to keep up sometimes with as much traveling I have been doing this summer. I needed to dead-head the basil because it was starting to bolt and I gathered up a bowlful of golden Pear tomatoes before I left for my Alaska trip.
