Bonatoes & Basil

Its Harvest time and more tomatoes are ready for the picking! We've been picking the basil all Summer. Just yesterday I made another batch of pesto and froze it. Carissa was my little picking helper. She loved it! Carissa calls tomatoes 'bonatoes'. It is the cutest word morph ever. I hope she says 'bonatoe' until middle school. seriously.
I am happy with my tomatoes and basil this year. Unfortunately my other vegetables did not produce well due to the heavy hail storms late in the Summer.
Next year, I want to try the Topsy Turvy Upside Down Tomatoe Hanger in addition to my potted tomatoes.


  1. I've always wanted to try the topsy turvy handing thing. I can't wait to see if it works.

    What's the other word Carissa says ... for ketchup? I loved that one too!

  2. You and I are going to have to talk gardening this winter. You have to teach me everything you know! :) You say bonatoes, I say bonawtoes...
