A moment in the yard

Over the weekend Chris finally had a few moments to himself to take care of the basil plants that Steve gave us.

We laughed when we picked up our CSA share last week, and it included, what else? A basil plant! We should definitely have a pesto party sometime soon. We've had really great basil the past two years, thanks to Steve's gift for sprouting it, and his lack of space to grow an entire farm of it (at least right now). We feel pretty lucky, especially since the few times we've tried to sprout our own plants, they never get bigger than about two inches tall. Who knows why? (not us, but I guess probably Steve...)

Our yard has been really brown lately, sort of like the rest of Tucson this time of year. At least we have these really cool starfish looking flowers blooming right now.

Starfish flowers smell like rotting meat though. Be... weary of sni...ffing too closely!
