There are just a few things growing in the garden in the backyard (or at least what is left of the garden).
There are three raspberry bushes, an old hot pepper plant, a few flowers, and a basil plant.
I put the basil plant in there one weekend just to fill some space. One weekend, when serving up leftovers I cut off some leaves, cut them up and tossed it with leftover spaghetti, olive oil and garlic powder, my son loved it.
I had some more spaghetti tonight and repeated the leftover recipe for myself. Just the act of walking to the plant, cutting the leaves and then adding it to the leftovers made a huge difference.
That one little plant which is now pretty big is something I'm grateful for.
