This afternoon I'm finishing up kitchen stuff. I just made a batch of hummus (I cooked the garbanzos several days ago), I have to slice and freeze peppers from the garden, but first I'll use a bunch in a mix of fajitas (I have some chicken to use and I think I'll put it in the smoker to make the fajitas really smoky, not just grilled.) And if I think of it I'll get some good onions and make a batch of salsa (I have the tomatoes and the peppers for it right now.) These things happen before it is time to blanch, dice, and can the tomatoes.

I put a bunch of basil seeds into a planter outside the kitchen door and am planning to continue what I did last year - the same thing to plant a bunch, and as they grew I thinned them to use as I needed and as they got bigger there weren't as many in the planter so there was room. I need to plant cucumbers this week (if I'd planted in the spring I'd have them now to go with the tomatoes, so I'll have to buy some for now - come fall I should have basil, tomatoes, and cucumbers.)

Now to do something about all of those eggplants. Oh, and do a load of laundry. And mow the front yard.
