i took these last evening while picking basil for dinner. proof that you don't need to have a perfect garden to get decent harvests.
compare with similar shot of pristine garden at the start of the season
and this one too. the trellis for the san marzano patch at the right has all but collapsed thanks to recent wind/rain.
but the plants don't care.
nor do the peppers care about weeds.
but the chard and cucumber may be even more tolerant.
what happens when you forget to mulch both sides of the basil bed?
please admire my weed forest.
