These giant zucchini’s and I have something in common. We’re both California grown! Here I am at our neighbor’s home back home in Nor Cal, showing off some of his garden finds. Steve has become a friend of my parents and they talk about him and his garden often. I finally had the chance to take a peek and loved what I saw!
Pretty lemon cucumber, right? I thought my dad’s colorful Hawaiian shirt would be a great backdrop.
Can you see Steve? He was hidden within the lush tomato vines and tossing tomatoes to my dad.
Just beautiful! There are a lot of potted flowers to attract the bees to pollinate.
I learned that when you clip basil, you should put it in water immediately – so have a can of water next to you as you harvest to prevent the basil from wilting.
I think dad looked like he won a pageant and the basil was his winning floral bouquet. Look what Steve sent us home with!
Oh, and this photo, was completely Steve’s idea, I think he should come with me on my shoots.
Diana Elizabeth ate those tomato cherries as a snack one morning. Add a basil leaf and you’ve got an even more fun snack!
