Secret Garden 2007 Part II: Glory Days

Our garden's peak of glory spanned August and September. Our basil plants grew into the size of small bushes, our mint threatened to take over the "lawn", and the daikon survived in the bankrupt, rocky and garbage infested strip of soil that I had sifted by hand.

We intended to use the mint to flavour our drinking water and season our lamb chops, and the basil was slated to be turned into basil paste for use throughout the winter.

Unfortunately, the busyness of the season overtook us, and the only thing we ever used any of our herbs for was this pizza (and possibly a few salads).

Oh yeah, I even made an outdoor composter out of the old apple boxes once they were no longer needed to shield the basil plants from prying eyes and violent winds.
