Daily Highlight: Although we had a very simple meal of pasta salad and mozzarella caprese for dinner, the fact that we can now use fresh basil from the herb garden adds to the level of enjoyment. As the season progresses, there will be more fresh items from our gardens and from Waterpenny Farm, located within walking distance from Serendipity Farmhouse.
(Caprese – denoting a salad of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil; we add extra virgin olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper.)
Weather: The rain continues. Although the high temperature of 73º kept life pleasant, the average humidity of 91% reminds one that the hot sticky days will return. (Detailed Summary – click here.)
Plantings: Nothing to report.
Harvest: Clipped just enough basil from the herb garden for our mozzarella caprese.
