first basil harvest

b and I were away for six days, and being a first-time gardener, I was worried about what to do with the garden. first I tried to get someone to stay at our place- no takers. then I asked my upstairs neighbor to keep an eye on it, but he was going away for the same period of time. so b suggested a timer and a sprinkler. and what do you know- it worked. there were only three small plants that got missed by the spray. the vegetables are getting enormous- and thankfully my tomato tipis were not knocked by down by any strong winds. I decided it was time to harvest some of the basil today. so exciting, knowing that I started these from seed.
