Sandra has been harvesting tomatoes

But first a message for our American readers:

U.S. Daylight Savings Time 2012
• STARTS: March 11, 2012 at 2am (set clocks AHEAD one hour)
• ENDS: November 4, 2012 at 2am (set clocks BACK one hour)

Ok now for the really important event, SANDRA writes….

‘This season I have tried a few new varieties (for me) of tomato. These cherry tomatoes have been a much later crop than the variety I used last year.

One of my family’s favourite recipes ‘Basil and Tomato Pesto’ gets made and eaten a lot during Summer when tomatoes and basil are plentiful. Basil and tomatoes are great companions in the garden.

Make the pesto using roasted pine nuts, olive oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic, grated parmesan cheese, torn basil leaves and halved cherry tomatoes.’

sure makes you want to rush out and create a garden. Editor’s comment
